Working in a company, especially in the philippines, you can feel that you are sometimes mis used. I mean they will give you loads loads of task but with unjust compensation. Most of the time the job your are working really hard, YOUR BOSS got all the credit. Where did it come from?

Yes dear friend. I can understand your problem! It is not only in Philippines, but it is almost seen every where and it is bit more observed in developing countries! There are basically few reasons for that. Boss knows who does a good job and who is submissive. He targets these people to get the job properly done and in turn he is rest assured that the job will be done properly and it will be done in a stipulated time! The Boss will never hand over such jobs to a person in whom he doesn't have faith as by doing so he may land up into trouble for himself! Secondly in the developing countries where the labour is cheap and there is lot of unemployment, the Boss knows that the employee can not do any thing but will have to listen to him and that's why these Bosses take such employees for granted! Thirdly I think with the increased competition in the market, the Bosses are also put under pressure to get the job done perfectly in a stipulated time , which in turn makes him to act like this way! Yes it is Ok, Bosses can take more work and burden their employees if they feel that they are efficient, but at the same time these poor people should be looked after in form of some additional remunerations, which will not only increase their income a bit but raise their Morales very high! This is an age old problem with line two and three management since a long time. I take such situations as a challenge and accomplish extra work without anticipating anything, thinking that this will help me some where in future and it has definitely helped me and today though I am a professional Vet for Equines, I am jack of all and because of which I get job in any good Company I want! Thus please convert these burdens to your advantages and get your self exposed to such situations and get expertise in it ! It will definitely help you out! There is no [point in cribbing at the things and disturbing our body hormones and keeping our frame of mind in a negative way! As you know there is no way out, just relax and start enjoying it and try to make it as your strong point which will definitely fetch a better opportunity in future! Wish you all the best and May God bless you with his choicest blessings!
