Salungguhit: Signs of Desperation and Failure

The ever-growing number of nursing graduates lining up for work abroad shows the desperate situation that the Filipino people are in; where the swelling numbers of the unemployed and underemployed leave the youth with no option but to aim for work abroad. This also shows the folly of the labor export policy, the failure of the Arroyo government to generate jobs, and the irony of having too many nurses while having understaffed government hospitals and health centers, and inaccessible health services. So much for “Ramdam ang kaunlaran.”
