Here is the post:
“Hi sir. I am Sam( not my real name). As a nurse I would Thank You for posting this picture. I think this will serve as a social awareness of the situation of public transportation and life of nurses here in the Philippines. We nurses struggle from College , Licensure Review, Board Examination and till the Employment. Allocation of budget for health and salary of Nurses is not a priority here in the Philippines. We are forced to work without pay or we are working underpaid.
No nurses here in the Philippines can afford to buy car if he/she will just depend on his/her monthly salary. Unless you are on the higher position earning 30k pesos plus yes you can have a car of your dream but you have to eat like a beggar for how many years. So a typical nurse commutes everyday.
Me, a jobhire/contractual nurse earning 9k pesos plus tax. How do you think I should live and act in this society. I can’t even gave a good amount money for my family because my salary is only enough for my daily allowance, fees, and my ” UTANGS which is INEVITABLE “.
In situation like this, nurses are force to apply and work abroad because we will not survive working here in the Philippines( SAD TRUTH) .
If we continue to work here, our parents will die without experiencing comfort of life because our salaries cannot compensate the needs of our families.
That time when you took my picture. I just wanted to go home as fast as I can. So that I can rest and prepare again for my next day shift. I think sitting at the foot of the jeepney is the only way I go home as early as possible without waiting for the next jeepney. I feel so sad but happy seeing my picture posted by someone I didn’t even know because this picture shows everything how a typical Nurse live and survive here in our country.”
