Increasing unemployment rate

Unemployed people feels poverty more than any one, especially in poor countries. I've finished my last 5-month contractual job and I have a baby due soon, which is a problem for I'll need money to support my hospitalization and child-care. Here in the Philippines, foreign investors build big businesses. They employ the capable, as long as you're a high school graduate you're allowed to apply. But if you don't pass, you can always try again for the next 6 months or try other foreign based companies. The implemented daily rate for the factory workers just isn't worth the hard-work and the pressure and the excess hours we were forced to work even on Sundays. We barely get enough rest and break from work and still the office workers who just sit around get more pay, more benefits and more time for their families. The rate for contractuals are lower than the regular workers', which is totally unfair. Our country takes on foreign investors since they believe it's a big help for the economy. But the arrangement just won't do for us regular people. Education helps to get big jobs. Nowadays, people work to get through school, school now being more of a necessity instead of a priviledge..

It is so strange the problems different countries have. Here in my part of Canada, they cannot find people to work. There is a terrible labor shortage.. Businesses are even closing down at times because they have nobody to help run them. Companies hire Technical students before they even finish their studies. I have a good job, and could be working 3 more if I wanted to, but I like my time off.
