It is not uncommon to see Filipino parents try their very best to send their children to school amidst the challenge of poverty. This is mainly because of the idea that only if their children are able to graduate from college and find a job, they will live better lives. For the children, however, this idea brings pressure because it means they are in a position of great responsibility.
In return, the desire of having jobs that would pay them big time is common to everyone. In the Philippines, the unemployment rate for the year 2018 is approximately 2.52 percent and it increased to 5.40 percent in July 2019 and was previously reported to be 5.10 percent for the month of April 2019.
