While having my overpriced but precious caffé mocha soy milk no whipped cream coffee for breakfast in makati, i chanced on this news article about rising unemployment rate in the philippines (link here). A migrants group was saying the rise is more now during/because of president aquino’s government, contrary to what the former might have said about migration becoming less during his term. While the article may be trying to be objective, it’s kinda off hook because the article did not mention anything about new graduates, children growing up ang trying to find new jobs, population rising and not getting accommodated in a non-expanding 7,107 island archipelago.
Right after the article, some related news articles are posted. Let’s put things in proper perspective. Here’s the screencap.
