The reality of Filipino workers


Hello everyone.

Nowadays, we are increasingly dependent on human resources from overseas such as Japanese company.

Lack of manpower.

I think this is a serious problem.

The farther away you are from the city, the fewer people there are.

Then, the company goes out to seek overseas human resources.

Tens of thousands of foreigners come to Japan every year using the overseas technical internship system.

Companies are looking for people who are cheap and work well.

That’s obvious.

Perhaps if you look at a foreigner who became an engineer, you should want to stay in the company even if you give a residence report.

Companies are so troubled that they want to stay in Japan as a foreigner.

There is a place where the balance between supply and demand is solid and it is made up of the current flow.

But some foreigners may actually work without a visa.

If found, it is not returned to the country of origin, and under Japanese law, severe penalties often go to the company.

The penalty for individuals is that they cannot come to Japan.

I want to work in Japan even if I take the risk.

I am stationed at a Japanese company in the Philippines.

Whatever I was born as a general Filipino, I would aim to be an overseas worker.

The people here aren’t well paid or treated.

It is no exaggeration to say that they are not treated as humans.

A while ago, a Japanese employee in their 40s posted on Twitter in Japan, “Salary allowance is 1400USD. Japan is over.” Takafumi Horie said, “Not in Japan it’s you.” His returned to 40s.

I think Mr. Horie is the correct answer to put it in a strict way, but the content posted by that employee was realistic.

There is no doubt that the number of such Japanese office workers is increasing.

If you worked in Manila as a treatment for Filipinos, it would cost 520 pesos (5USD) a day.

It’s a daily wage.

The Japanese receive 800 yen per hour even if they are part-time jobs.

Considering that, the reality of developing countries is very severe.

When talking with Filipinos, money is everywhere.

If you are Japanese, it’s rude to search for the other person’s pockets, and basically you don’t answer when asked.

There is a reason for Filipino people to listen to such things in a calm way, but if there is someone who can afford it, many people will help if they ask.

Speaking of the spirit of mutual help, it sounds good, but no matter how low-income people help each other, it’s only a makeshift situation.

Then I think I should work.

I thought so at first.

But I can’t work.

Companies give priority to university graduates, and those who only have a high school education at public high schools are awaiting day labor. Many people do not even receive the day labor.

The company I work for is about 50 kilometers south of Manila.

I commute to work every day there and go to a nearby Japanese restaurant at noon. Lunch menu is about 300 pesos(3USD).

If you’re a Filipino, it’s too expensive to enter.

Local rice is a side dish of rice.

The amount is 60-80 pesos(under the 1USD).

I still think it’s expensive.

The monthly salary is about 1,5000 pesos(150USD) after overtime work. It is a very difficult household economy because I have to support my family with that salary.

I think the situation will change a little if I become a manager, but working abroad can make a lot more money.

I can’t do that.

It is better to be careful because if you think about it poorly, you may end up with a habit that will support you and you may have trouble with your employees later.

The ones sold are expensive. But the salary is low.

Public dissatisfaction has increased and public security has deteriorated. And there are many incidents that attack foreigners who may have money.

Of course, there is no money to support the country.

Even if they support it, there is only a small amount of support that the person in charge of each institution takes and goes to the end.

This is the culture of this country and it doesn’t make any sense to speak out against it.

Because they understand this situation, they become overseas workers and leave their own country to work.

In terms of working environment, Japan is well organized and easy to work.

If I’m a Philly, it’s okay to go abroad to work.

There are a few language barriers, but you’ll see it in years.

To be honest, there is no bad system in this country.

It remains as it is.

I have no choice but to accept and live, and I don’t want to pity Filipinos.

Monthly basic salary 11.000 pesos (about 220USD)

One meal 50-80 pesos (about 1 to 1.5USD)

Rent 5,000 pesos (about 100 USD)

Home appliances, the amount is the same as overseas

Transportation expenses Round trip 40 to 80 pesos (0.5 to 1USD)

Not very much, but Filipino workers have no future.

Even if you have a chance, it’s good to be a manager.

The conglomerate holds the interests, and the situation of the people does not change even if the government changes.

No matter how much you think about it, this is the reality.
