Your missing the point, students worked hard some even works as working students just to finish college and get a degree... Parents work day and night just so they can send their children to college so they can get a decent job no parents would wish her child to end up working as a helper after graduating. You don't understand the mentality of the Filipinos, if you come from a poor family and you have a college graduate son/daughter as a parent you will take that as an achievement from your hard work, you send them to school so they get a brighter future, make life easier for them and hopefully be able to get a high pay job or work abroad as most of them this is their ambition. When I was growing up I had this nanny, she was awesome! My parents been treating her like a family and we still do, we supported her son financially from high school to college because she always wanted him to get a better job and not end up like her because mind you, a helper's job is hard work and lucky he did. So he finally graduated and now working as an engineer and his mum is no longer with us but she's forever grateful and couldn't thank us enough now she's at home looking after her own children and grandchildren and I remember her saying, as much as possible as a parent u wouldn't want to see your child working as a helper for another family apart from your being far from them, it's like winning a lottery looking for a good boss that won't hurt you and treat you fairly.
