OFWs have to wait for jobs at home — DOLE

Overseas Filipino workers would have to wait a while before government can generate enough decent jobs for them to come home, the country’s new labor chief said over the weekend.

For now, President Benigno Simeon “Noynoy” Aquino III ordered to increase protection for OFWs in their host countries, Labor Secretary Rosalinda Baldoz said on government-run dzRB radio.

“Bagamat ang layunin mag-create ng bagong jobs sa ating bansa at magkaroon ng maayos na hanapbuhay, maaaring ‘di agad mangyari ‘yan. Sa ating kababayang nasa ibang bansa na nagtatrabaho at magtatrabaho, mas malawak na proteksyon gustong makita ni Pangulong Aquino (While the intention is to create new jobs in the country – to have decent jobs – this may not happen immediately. For our compatriots working abroad and those planning to work overseas, President Aquino wants to see increased protection.),” Baldoz said.

The Labor Department and other government offices still need to lay down the groundwork to generate more jobs at home, she said.

Aquino, in his inaugural speech on Wednesday, promised to generate more jobs at home leveling the playing field to encourage more investments so that Filipinos need not go abroad for jobs that pay better.

“We will cut red tape dramatically and implement stable economic policies. We will level the playing field for investors and make government an enabler, not a hindrance, to business,” the President said.

“Layunin nating paramihin ang trabaho dito sa ating bansa upang hindi na kailangan ang mangibang-bansa para makahanap ng trabaho (Our goal is to generate enough jobs so Filipinos need not go abroad to find work),” he added.

In the meantime, he ordered the Department of Foreign Affairs, Philippine Overseas Employment Administration, and Overseas Workers Welfare Administration – previously headed by Baldoz – to address the concerns of OFWs. —VS, GMANews.TV

Number of jobless Filipino nurses increasing

MANILA, Philippines – Richard Palikpik was one of the 92,000 nursing graduates who took the licensure examinations on Saturday.

Palikpik said he spent the last 3 months reviewing for the exam.

“Ayaw namin bumaba pa ang aming rating para hindi rin bumaba ang tingin ng ibang bansa sa amin,” he said.

But according to an official of the Review Center Association of the Philippines (RECAP), failing in the exams should be the least of the nursing graduates’ concerns.

“Ang pinakamahirap ay ang maghanap ng trabaho. Madali lang naman pumasa,” said Dr. Carl Balita, vice-president of RECAP.

According to the Professional Regulation Commission (PRC), there are 187,000 unemployed nurses in the country today. They can’t find work because there are no vacancies in hospitals, it added.

Lack of work experience also prevents them from seeking jobs abroad like in the United States and Britain.

That is why Jen Palmero, who took the exams, said she would accept any work abroad even as a caregiver with lower salary.

“Caregiver is okay,” she said. “Related naman.”

For the PRC, it will be a waste of manpower if the government continues to allow nurses to work abroad as caregivers or nursing assistants.

Nursing graduates, meanwhile, called on the new administration to increase the plantilla positions of nurses in government hospitals to accommodate new nurses.
