13.8 million Filipinos were unemployed according to Social Weather System (SWS) Survey and that comprises 34.4% unemployment rate, the highest so far in the history of the Philippines.
From 24% unemployment rate last December 2011 the said rate increases by more than 10% this first quarter of 2012 and it is really hard to look for another one, I should know LOL
43% of the respondents who were jobless are female and 27.6% are male. Majority of the respondents also believed that they will remain jobless for the next 12 months though.
I constantly heard the President saying that the Economy of the Philippines is way better than the previous administration, then why it is this hard to be employed then? why do some of my mentors even told me that it is easier to find a Job when PNOY isn’t elected.. Haix, I just hope that whenever they’ll brag regarding their works there will be enough indications and proof that it is really happening. We can’t always rely on numbers though and we must feel that the economy is really progressing somehow.
