It seems that the more satisfied the people are, the happier they are. What do you expect with the 2.8 million (according to the NSO) unemployed Filipinos? Who would be happy with no food on the table? Who would be happy for not being able to send their children in school? Who would be happy without having money to buy the medicines they need? This unemployment rate does not include those who are no longer looking for work. To date, one million Filipinos lost hope and resigned to not finding one.
How sad. Maybe you are one of those who have the regular jobs and receiving decent salaries every month. But thinking about these situations of our fellow-Filipinos, would you be happy? As much as I do not want to believe, but it seems true in a way, “Money does buy happiness.”
