Since my HR assistant left, I’ve been doing a lot of interviewing and orientation. My heart breaks whenever I see another single mother who’s been beaten or cheated on by her ex boyfriend, and cannot seem to get her sh*t together.
You have to be on the ground to really understand just how sad the Philippines can be. You don’t really see it when you window shop or eat at BGC. You see it when you talk to these minimum wage earners who’s dragged down by life.
“I feel bad because often times, it’s their own fault on why they’re in their mess,” I tell my husband.
They knew the guy was an irresponsible good for nothing and they still had multiple babies with the dude.
They knew the job was merely temporary and yet, they still tried the job and left once their 5-month contracts ended.
They left their previous jobs for the stupidest of reasons, only to stupidly jump into another job. At the end of the day, the job’s fine. It’s the applicant who is not.
They knew that they have to work to feed their family. And yet many of them abandon the work because of family, only to borrow money to find another job because their family can’t survive if they don’t work.
They make wrong decisions in their personal lives and suffer greatly as a result.
Many people are poor and suffering. But many poor people can also improve their lives with enough hard work. Money doesn’t just come to the lucky but also to those who work hard for it. But often times, many Filipinos don’t want to work hard.
I’ll try to expedite finding an HR personnel before I go out of my mind.
