INFOGRAPHIC: The Filipino worker
MANILA, Philippines – Who is the Filipino worker?
Through this infographic, Rappler explains who the typical Filipino employee (or the unemployed) is -- how old he or she is, how much formal education he or she went through, where he or she works, how much he or she earns, and more.
This visual treat also shows the big picture: how many are vying for jobs or joining the labor pool after graduation, or after contract expiration or termination. The government considers a person eligible to join the labor pool when he or she reaches 15.
While the job numbers in the country are an indication of how the Philippines' phenomenal economic growth is trickling down, we also note the millions of overseas Filipino workers (OFWs) who decided to join or supplement other countries' labor pool. - research by Ramon Calzado/Rappler.com
