On July 22, midway through his term, a monster with a yellow ribbon in his barong will again face the scene stealers, oldies and neophytes, in his fourth State of the Nation Address(SONA).
His bosses slash followers, the minions, will listen to him.
SONA is an opportunity for the big man to tell the kingdom about the national situation and about his plans.
It should also be my chance as a tiny significant follower to come up with my own plans.
Reducing Human Poverty
We heard the scene stealers during their campaign: “Murang pagkain. Maraming pagkain. Aasenso ang buhay.”
How to reduce poverty in the nation? It’s not a feeding program.
These men of law should promote growth and think of the creation of more wealth while closing the gap between the rich and the poor. The creation of 1.4 million jobs in the past year is not enough. We need more jobs.
This land has the fastest-growing economy in Asia it failed to offset high figures of unemployment. Unemployment is not only the problem in our realm. Some employees who has education, experience, or skills beyond the requirements of the job are still in underemployment status. Can you just imagine a licensed teacher who is working as a saleslady in a department store, a registered nurse who is a taxi driver, or a business administration graduate who was trained to become a security guard?
