Daughter # 2 commented over dinner tonight that there are a bunch of teachers in the school where she teaches who are applying or have applied for positions abroad. One lucky IB teacher had been contacted by an international school in Boston for the position of a Chemistry teacher. Well and good. Daughter # 2 still has no immediate plans of applying for a teaching position abroad because she wants to pursue her Masterals in Early Childhood Education first.

Daughter # 1 said a lot of nurses in the hospital where she is a resident are glued to the net searching for jobs in health care - any related job, that is. Nurses' wage here in Manila are way too low that more and more nurses are looking for greater opportunities abroad. First class tertiary hospitals here in Manila charge their patients outrageously high! Why can't they pay their nurses a fair share? Ditto for schools! There's tuition hike every year yet private teachers' salaries stay the same. No wonder more Filipino teachers and nurses are going abroad to work.

  1. How are you feeling na? Hopefully medyo naka pag relax ka na.

    Oo nga at ang mahal ng medical bills & tuition fees ng private schools..why can't they pay nurses & teachers enough to prevent brain drain dyan. It's very frustrating to the nurses/teachers to say the least.


  2. with the present economic condition and the future, a lot are already thinking of working abroad rather than waiting for miracles to happen - better pay!

  3. why most of us going abroad/MONEY is the answer bear in mind not all of us can have a better life abroad dito tiyaga at sipag ang kailangan
