I'm a filipino and heard that our president wouldn't allow filipinos to work abroad if their age is under 25. Why would she do that? There are so many opportunities in other countries and most of them wants to support their family by working overseas.A student normally graduates from college at the age of 20 to 21. But now they have to wait until they reach 25 to work abroad. What is youf comment about that?

Actually I am an Indian but I am so much suprised at such a decision from your president maybe I think she took such a decision to stop smart people from leaving your country so that there is no brain drain problem in your country.

well i think it's one of many stupid decisions that our president have already implemented. but i think it is not yet implemented. i think that's sick, because all of us know how hard it is to earn here in this country, and that salary here can never be enough to sustain a decent living. the president wanted nationalism and patriotism to hit the road before other countried make use of the talents that we fresh graduates can offer. she wants us, graduates to serve the country first before anyone else that's why she's implementing that stupid law. well, i'm 22 and i'm already going to leave the country for work, i hope that you'll gonna find a way to work abroad.
