A job crisis survival guide

By Ma. Salve Duplito
First Posted 20:49:00 02/01/2009

YOU COULD SAY PREPARING for extreme uncertainty now that corporate shutdowns and downsizing are escalating is already a bit late.

In a perfect world, we should have already drawn up clever financial escape hatches and different levels of fallback strategies to survive possible unemployment.

But it’s also human nature to party while Noah-like characters build arks when the sun is shining. Unfortunately, the sun is gone and rain is falling. Just last week, Intel has announced it was closing its more than two-decades-old plant in the Philippines, turning 1,800 employees jobless—and that was just the beginning.

Panasonic, Mitsumi Phils., Texas Instruments and many others announced they were either totally shutting down plants or downsizing. Official figures from the Department of Labor and Employment show that 19,000 Filipinos have already been retrenched and 34,000 have suffered from wage cuts as of Jan. 29. Hundreds more are losing their jobs every day, said Labor Secretary Marianito Roque.

Globally, the figures look even more alarming. The International Labor Organization expects the economic crunch to add 50 million people to the ranks of the unemployed this year.

Who is Sta. Ursula?

Saint Ursula, or Sta. Ursula to us, is the Patroness of Binangonan.

The exact date and place of the birth of Saint Ursula cannot be exactly determined. We knew she was born in Britain in the fifth century. She was the daughter of a British King and was renowned for her beauty and wisdom.

Rev. Victor Gaboury: Fiesta Greetings 1964

This is a screenshot taken from the e-book "Binangonan Town Festival '64".


Ngayon, ika-20 ng Oktubre, ay bisperas ng fiesta ni Sta. Ursula. Tiyak na siksikan na naman, na animo'y hindi mahulugang karayom, ang ating palengke sa dami ng mga mamimili ng panghanda. Natural na kasi atin na kahit anong hirap ng buhay ay talagang ginagawan ng paraan upang mairaos man lamang ang kapiyestahan. Iyon ang kaugaliang ating kinamulatan na isang paraan ng pagpupugay at pagpapasalamat sa ating Mahal na Patron.

Para doon sa mga Kababayan natin na matagal nang napalayo sa Binangonan, natatandaan n'yo pa kaya ang awiting patungkol kay Sta. Ursula?

Sa aming palagay ay maaaring mas nakararami na ang hindi nakakatanda sa kabuuan o kahit bahagi man lang ng awiting iyon. Kung kaya't aming minabuting ilathala ito bilang isang pagsariwa at pagpapaalaala.
