The title of the study and the variable of the study were defined. Background of the Study
In late the 90’s demands for fast meat production was highly recommended due to the growing population in the Philippines. Public demands on meat products and processing industry need a fast approach. Public slaughterhouses were made to be able to accommodate the number of meat products and the escalating volume of livestock in a community. The slaughterhouse emerged as a unique institution as a part of larger transition from an agrarian to industrial system in the Philippines. Prior to the
point animals were slaughtered for consumptions on diverse places in the country. Hence, cleanliness of the public slaughterhouse must be monitored for the safety of the meat products before the public consumption (Hudsen, 2008). Regular inspection and proper waste disposal must be practiced to ensure the efficiency and safety of slaughterers inside the slaughterhouse (Marckwardt, 1983). The Guimbal Public Slaughterhouse was one among the 44 public slaughterhouses in the province of Iloilo, located at the Barakang, Guimbal, Iloilo. The construction of the Guimbal Public Slaughterhouse started on the year 2000 and started to operate in the month of July 2003. Since the operation of the public slaughterhouse started, the Municipality of Guimbal has increased its meat processing industry. In addition, the employment rate of the community increased because most of the residents are able to have a permanent job and increase the income of their own family. However, the area from which the slaughterhouse was built is surrounded by residential areas and the drainage used for the wastewater from the public slaughterhouse is used by most of the residents in the area. In connection to this issue, the researchers formulated this study to determine the perceived advantages and disadvantages of the operation of the public slaughterhouse to the Guimbalanon living on the area and its workers by the length of stay in the area.
Statement of the Problem
This study aimed to determine the perceived advantages and disadvantages of the operation of the public slaughterhouse to the Guimbalanon. Specifically, it sought to answer the following questions:
1.) What is the extent of the perceived advantages and disadvantages of the operation of the public slaughterhouse to the Guimbalanons when taken as a whole and grouped according to the length of stay (a. 1-20 years, b. 21-40 years and c. 41-40 years)?
2.) Are there any significant differences in the perceived advantages and disadvantages of the operation of the public slaughterhouse to the Guimbalanons when grouped according to the length of stay (a. 1-20 years, b. 21-40 years and c. 41-40 years)?
Therefore, it was hypothesized that there was no any significant differences in the perceived advantages and disadvantages of the operation of the public slaughterhouse to the Guimbalanons when grouped according to the length of stay.
