Doctors, nurses, engineers, and teachers are forced to work overseas in order to supplement the needs of their family. There are also skilled professionals working in different industries such as information technology, factory, and so on. This has become the set up for Philippines labor market for the past decades.

As new investors decided to venture their business in the Philippines, potential growth in the labor market was seen. The business process outsourcing was able to give thousands of jobs to unemployed Filipinos. As a matter of fact, even employed people shifted to BPO industry because it has a better pay. With the hand in hand effort of the current Aquino administration, the socio-economic status of the Philippines has significantly improved. A lot of Filipinos were able to land a decent job.
