Pangasinan unemployment rate goes down

LINGAYEN – Despite the country’s rise on jobless Filipinos, Pangasinan unemployment rate went down to 8.3 percent in April this year from 9.2 percent during the same period last year posting a decrease of .9 percent.

News dispatch dated September 15 by the Agence France Presse (AFP), an international and the oldest news agency in the world, reported that unemployment in the Philippines jumped to 7.6 percent from year-ago rate of 6.8 percent, or an increase of .8 percent.

But Pangasinan posted a decrease in unemployment which, according to Pangasinan Employment Services Office head Alex Ferrer, can be attributed to the effective implementation of various manpower and employment development program of the provincial government.

Interesting and intriguing

bishop2Needless to say, the so called “Election Fever” has already taken the front seat in the national scene, some time ago since.

And as the sun will rise tomorrow – with or without its rays reaching the earth – the said fever can readily become a downright disease cum deceit as time marches towards the precarious and frightful May 2010.

To expect and say otherwise would be wishful thinking of the first class. Otherwise, the Country would not be the Philippines, and the national exercise could be anything but Philippine elections. Partisan politics in the land is one big party of the best and the worse of many Filipinos are trying to outdo each other.
