I am sad for the many filipino overseas workers who were sent home from Saudi Arabia, Thailand, Taiwan and in many other parts of the world as a result of the streamlining of posistions by companies who were affected by the economic crisis. Some of them went home with only a few monies left due to the unexpected termination. I know they are happy to be with their families but the offshoot of this would not be good as they will belong to the unemployed sectors of the society. I know they will cope, as filipinos are great with coping during hard times.

it happens most in some Asian countries... also in the US. There are like 500,000 people that are now unemployed. i hope things will be better soon.
