Introduction

Nowadays, population in the Philippines is rapidly increasing but companies and factories are decreasing because of the economic problems of the Philippines which results to unemployment.

The unemployed persons are mostly found in their homes in streets or job fairs hoping to find a job for their families. The main reasons of this economic problem here in the Philippines are, first, lack of jobs available which convince people to work abroad to find jobs, second, lack of quality of education, for example, an nursing school there are 420,000 students but only 40 percent of the students are able to pass the boarding exam, and third lack of experience of jobless workers or fresh graduates.

The media and global motility also cause migration. Migrations greatly influence the economical and cultural aspects of a country but it also has its negative effect.
