    Why not the government make a solution for this unemployed individuals. Why not hiring them to clean streets, more police, enforcers etc. Why government did not use minerals and oils in our country. Mining and oil are taking by some countries.Why not our government oprate it? Why our government do not purchase equipments to be used to build our own business.Steel, Nickel Copper, gold, cobalt, charcoal, and duterium resources . Who own these? who managed? and who benefited these? Why are we still depend on importation? Rice Production why our government do not buy our own products?

    A better economy means nothing if anyone can’t find a job. improvement in national economy should means more jobs, but this is not the case. jobs will open up but these jobs requires people of higher education. not the kind most people in the Philippines are qualified for and foreign investments doesn’t do anything for this problem. all we need is some initiative and sense

    Hi, actually, I have taken a courses in one of the livelihood schools you mentioned but nothing happened. I am now earning through online writing while doing tutorial jobs. I guess one just have to hone one’s skills and not involve oneself to so many things because it will only confuse you. Thanks though for sharing. These business news will help a lot of Pilipinos.
