PostSubject: A Day Wihtout Filipinos   Mon Jul 30, 2007 12:34 am

OT sa taha?basa muna para sa mga pinoy....

Let's imagine then, not just California, but the entire world,
waking
up one day to discover Filipinos have disappeared.
I'm talking here
about the six or seven million Filipinos
currently working overseas in
countries with names that
run the entire alphabet, from Angola to
Zimbabwe .


Let's not worry first about why or
how the Filipinos disappeared; in
fact, it becomes
academic whether it's a day or a week. Just imagine a
world without Filipinos.

Think
of the homes that are dependent on Filipino housekeepers,
nannies, caregivers. The homes would be chaotic as kids cry out for
their nannies. Hong Kong and Singaporean and Taiwanese yuppie
couples
are now forced to stay home and realizing,
goodness, there's so much
of housework that has to be
handled and how demanding their kids can
be and hey,
what's this strange language they're babbling in?

It's not just the children that are affected. The problems
are even
more serious with the elderly in homes and
nursing institutions,
because Filipino caregivers have
provided so much of the critical
services they need. When
temporary contractual workers are brought in
from among
non-Filipinos, the elderly complain. They want their
Filipino caregivers back because they have that special touch, that
extra patience and willingness to stay an hour more when needed.


Hospitals, too, are adversely
affected because so many of the
disappeared Filipinos were
physicians, nurses and other health
professionals. All
appointments for rehabilitation services, from
children
with speech problems to stroke survivors, are indefinitely
postponed because of disappeared speech pathologists,
occupational and physical therapists!


Eventually, the hospital administrators
announce they won't take in
any more patients unless the
conditions are serious. Patients are told
to follow their
doctors' written orders and, if they have questions,
to
seek advice on several Internet medical sites. But within two days,
the hospitals are swamped with new complaints. The web sites

aren't working because of missing Filipino web designers
and web
site managers.

Service establishments throughout the world -- restaurants,

supermarkets, hotels -- all close down because of their
missing key
staff involved in management and maintenance.
In Asia , hotels
complain about the missing bands and
singers.

In the United States ,
many commercial establishments have to close
shop, not
just because of the missing Filipino sales staff but because
their suppliers have all been sending in notices about delays in
shipments. Yup, the shipping industry has gone into a crisis
because
of missing Filipino seafarers.

The shipping firms begin to look into the emergency
recruitment of
non-Filipino seafarers but then declare
another crisis: They're
running out of supplies of oil for
their ships because the Middle
Eastern countries have come
to a standstill without their Filipino
workers, including
quite a few working for the oil industry.

Frantic presidents and prime ministers call on the United Nations
to
convene a special session of the Security Council but
Kofi Annan says
he can't do that because the UN system
itself is on the edge, with so
many of their secretarial
and clerical staff, as well as translators,
having
disappeared from their main headquarters in New York and
Geneva, as well as their regional offices throughout the world. Quite

a number of UN services, especially refugee camps, are
also in danger
of closing down because of missing Filipino
health professionals and
teachers.

Annan also explains that he can't convene UN meetings
because the
airports in New York , Washington and other
major US cities have been
shut down. The reason? The
disappeared Filipinos included quite a few
airport
security personnel who used to check passengers and their
baggage.

Annan calls on the
World Bank and international private foundations
for
assistance but they're crippled, too, because their Filipino
consultants and staff are nowhere to be seen. Funds can't be remitted

and projects can't run without the technical assistance
provided for
by Filipinos.

An exasperated Annan calls on religious leaders to pray, and pray

hard. But when he phones the Pope, he is told the Catholic
Church,
too, is in crisis because the disappeared include
the many Filipino
priests and nuns in Rome who help run
day-to-day activities, as well
as missionaries in the
front lines of remote posts, often the only
ones providing
basic social services.

As they
converse, Annan and the Pope agree on one thing: the world has
become a quieter place since the Filipinos disappeared. It isn't just

the silencing of work and office equipment formerly
handled by
Filipinos; no, it seems there's much less
laughter now that the
Filipinos aren't around, both the
laughter of the Filipinos and those
they served.

I know, I know, I'm exaggerating the
contributions of Filipinos to the
world but I'm doing what
the producers of "A Day without Mexicans" had
in mind:
using a bit of hyperbole to shake people up.

As their blurb for the film goes: "How do you make the invisible,

visible? Make them invisible."

As I wrote this column, I did realize I was doing this not
so much for
the Hong Kong Chinese and Taiwanese and
Singaporeans and
Americans who don't appreciate us enough,
than for us, who as
Filipinos, are pretty good at putting
ourselves down, at making
ourselves invisible.

Belittling the Overseas Filipinos



During the last couple of weeks, we have witnessed the strengthening of
the peso against the dollar. Whether this strengthening is real or
artificial does not matter. The fact is that the pesos’ strengthening
has adversely affected the Overseas Filipinos and their families.



In school we were taught that a strong peso means higher purchasing
power. In layman’s term it simply means that with a strong peso we
should be able to buy more goods and services. If that statement is
true, the decrease in the dollar’s exchange rate should therefore not
worry the families of Overseas Filipinos in the Philippines since the
decrease will be cancelled out by an equivalent decrease in the prices
of goods and services.



However the laws of economics do not seem to apply in the Philippines.
While the government has continuously announced that the economy is
improving, this is not being felt at all by the consumer sector. In
fact, instead of prices going down, prices of prime commodities
continue to rise. The failure of the ‘strong peso’ to provide better
purchasing power has caused a double edged problem to the Overseas
Filipinos and their families.



To maintain the present peso equivalent of their dollar remittances,
Overseas Filipinos have to tighten their belts to be able to remit more
dollars to their families back home. In the Philippines, the families
of Overseas Filipinos also have to tighten their belts to make the best
of what they received from family members abroad.



But to Secretary Neri, Overseas Filipinos should even be thankful

because they are not being taxed anyway, obviously referring to the
aborted plan to tax the Overseas Filipinos’ income. To him it is more
important for government to provide a peso-dollar protection for the
Filipino exporters because their peso earnings are getting smaller,
unlike the overseas Filipinos whose remittances are, according to him,
getting higher due to better quality jobs they land into. Neri sees the
diminishing income of the export sector, but his eyes are closed to the
Overseas Filipinos’ dilemma. He thinks that the remittances are getting
higher because Overseas Filipinos get higher pay for better jobs, but
fails to see that Overseas Filipinos have to send more dollars to
maintain the peso equivalent of what families back home are receiving.



I wonder what could be the reason why it is too easy for cabinet
members like Neri to belittle us Overseas Filipinos. They are aware
that there are millions of us spread all over the globe; they know that
if we want we can bring down the economy, and make the government
officials fall to their knees; they know that if we cut our remittances
by half for three consecutive months we can bring back the exchange
rate to 56 pesos to the dollar or even higher and make the members of
the Makati Business Club cry; they know that at any point in time we
can make or break a sitting President. Yet why are they so brave to
give us so little importance, if any?



My history teacher in high school once told us that there is power in
numbers. I believe him because I have seen it worked in several
occasions, most recent of which are the two impeachment cases filed
against GMA. Those two cases did not prosper because the opposition in
the lower house did not have the number of votes needed.



How about us Overseas Filipinos, do we have the strength in number that
would make Malacanang tremble? The latest estimate places the number of
Overseas Filipinos to about eight million. If on the average there are
three voting members in each Overseas Filipino family, the eight
million will easily translate to twenty four million votes - enough to
send a presidential candidate to Malacanang. Do we have the number? The
answer of course is yes. Yes we have the number, but we do not have the
strength!



I know it is sad to admit that while we Overseas Filipinos have all the
power in our hands, we have not been able to use it. The reason is
because up to now, we are still so disorganized; we are just like
broomsticks scattered on the floor – sometimes stepped on, sometimes
kicked to the corners, sometimes picked up and broken into pieces. And
for as long as we remain scattered, the high and mighty, the Neris and
his kind, will continue to step on us, kick us to the corners, or even
break us into pieces. I can only hope and pray, that one day one of
those kicks will be strong enough to awaken the sleeping giant in us.





FORWARD TO ALL FILIPINO OVERSEAS.
