How Filipinos work hard and seen in a Photographer’s eye

Many Filipinos know how hard it is to find a job that suits their preferred career.

Every year we get fresh college graduates is another year someone changes their status to unemployed.

Sometimes these people force themselves take a job they don’t really like just because it is the only one available to them.

But if a person who finished their education already has a hard time getting the right career in life, then it’s definitely more difficult for someone who hasn’t finished their education?

We can find these people working everywhere.

Some are stuck in traffic on their way to work for big companies.

While some works on the streets selling food and water putting their life on the line.

Whatever these people’s jobs are, it’s still work. Indeed, everyone needs something to rely on to survive.

And it is overwhelming how someone has realized all these just by looking at these people.
