Are Chinese nationals ‘flooding’ the Filipino job market?

33 11 76

THE Philippines appears to be having an influx of Chinese immigrants as millions of Filipinos move overseas to seek employment opportunities beyond the sparse job market.

In wake of this, the Southeast Asian country’s opposition lawmakers have pointed to a possible “flood” of mainlanders, a national problem which has been compounded by President Rodrigo Duterte’s apparent lack of knowledge on the numbers of Chinese nationals working in the country legally or illegally.

According to the South China Morning Post, Senator Joel Villanueva, during a recent senate hearing, castigated Bureau of Immigration and Department of Labour and Employment (DOLE) officials on the matter.
