| | Why filipinos want to live in the US soil?
There are no lucrative job opportunities in the Philippines. That is true. If there are, mostly people who are already on top are being handed those top positions. We believe employment is the main reason for moving to the United States. Poor employments in the country made Filipinos leave for the United States to seek better salaries and opportunities
To some few Filipinos do want to go in the states for higher educations. If you're a graduate from U.S., most likely you get the better positions in a company. There is a lot difference if the diploma you're holding is made in U.S.A.
Political situation and ugly economics only made filipinos escape and choose the U.S. soil. Dollars only motivates us why.
And other Filipinos do have relatives, even children, spouses and parents, in the Philippines. Those who are in the Philippines may want to be reunited with their US-based relatives, especially since Filipinos are known for their family-oriented culture.
