Feature Story: POKPOK AKO SA UAE

By: Raquel Delfin Padilla

Ito ay hango sa totoong buhay ng isang kababayan na inilapit ni kapitbahay niya sa akin na nailapit ko sa Patnubay at nakarating naman sa embahada ng Pilipinas sa UAE. Pagkatapos ng tatlong linggong naging babaeng bayaran sa UAE, si Kabayan ay nasa Pilipinas na at kasama ang kanyang asawa at anak.

POKPOK AKO SA UAE

Ako si Erma, 22 years old, may asawa at isang anak.

Tulad ng karamihan, nangarap din akong gumanda ang buhay namin ng pamilya ko. Kahit anong sikap namin ng aking asawa, kulang pa rin dahil hindi naman kaming dalawa nakatapos ng pag-aaral. Kung mayroon man kaming matinong trabaho, kulang pa rin sa pangangailangan namin.

Construction Worker
by Jovelyn Bayubay Revilla

Dito sa mainit na disyerto
Bitbit namin ay bigating kargamento
Akyat baba sa mga establisento
Sukat doon, dagdag dito
Kapalit ng libong sweldo
Sa pamilyang mahal ko

Buhay namin ay walang pinag-iba
Sa mga inday na kadama
Parehong nangungulila
Sa bayang maralita
Buhay natin ay nagdusa
Kayo man ay bilanggo at nag-iisa
Kami naman ay malaya pero ubos ang pera
Sa padala at lakwatsa
Para maibsan ang kalungkutang nadarama

Job Principles – by Ms. Susan Ople

By Susan V. Ople
As Posted in www.susanople.com

Your first job shapes you. You come in, timid and careful, soaking the environment in while wanting to blend with the wall. Days and weeks after, you passed the first hurdle, a simple task, and made contact with your first-to-be friend and confidante. Life proceeds from there, and your first job becomes a process of self-discovery like no other.

Subsequent jobs are yours to shape. No matter how you lost the first one, the jobs that follow it bear your imprint as a more experienced employee. By this time, you’d know how to extend your hand for the standard pleased-to-meet-you handshake, while easing in your calling card during a conversation with a potential client at the appropriate time. Isn’t this the natural progression for career-oriented people? A career ladder goes upwards, not sideways and certainly not downwards from midway to the bottom rung.

KAWA SA POLITIKA, MAY KAHINAM UG KABALISA

mibukal na ang kawa sa politika,
adunay magbuwag, may maghiusa,
kagahapon kontra, karon managhigala
bisag asa, bisag kanus-a, basta politika
katawhan, mabahin, maglibog, kita magmata….

dili ikalimod, matag higayon kon mokablit na ang kuyamoy sa politika, kini magpasabot ug pagpanuyhakaw sa nagkadaiyang panghunahuna…kasagaran kanila magtakuban, kuno mga buotan, apan sila may gipangitngitan.

The true leaders’ missions for the country – Atty JBJ

Source: DIRECT FROM THE LABOR FRONT By Atty Josephus Jimenez

The first mission of a true leader is to search, jointly with the people, for A COMMON VISION, a nation’s or an organization’s common aspiration, one that embodies the dreams, the desired situation, the long-range goals of the people. The leader must be able to articulate in few and simple words what the people wish fervently in their hearts and minds. He must not impose on the people what he personally wants. Rather, he must guide them in expressing their own genuine definition of the future that they choose to create for themselves and for their posterity. Moses was such a leader.

The second mission of a leader is to UNITE THE PEOPLE and in the pursuit of the common vision. This vision must be taught by him and his trusted co-teachers to all the people. The common vision should transcend all barriers, break all boundaries of social and economic status and political colors and ideological leanings. Uniting the people means that the leader must be able to create a unifying message of hope, a reassuring atmosphere, where the strong shall not oppress the weak, and the weak shall not rebel against the strong. Jesus Christ was such a leader.

SI TATAY HULYO PALIKERO

Ang pagdawat sa buhat nga mamunga og maayong panag-ingnan maoy sukaranan sa liso sa kaayo, mosalingsing kini aron mapuslan sa kadaghanan. Apan kun atong ipadaplin ang buhat nga maayo, kini mamunga og dili maayo.

Sa lungsod sa Kanturatoy, adunay linalang nga dili gayud hitupngan ang kahibawo sa mga hiyas nga kadaghanan gilikayan. Anaa kaniya ang dungog sa pagkadukirok sa babaye, pagkasugarol, pagkahambogero, ug pagkapalahubog. Siya nabantog sa tawag, Tatay Hulyo.

Why many companies lost labor cases in 2012 – Atty JBJ

Source: DIRECT FROM THE LABOR FRONT By Atty Josephus Jimenez

Despite the tremendous advantages being enjoyed by employers, despite being defended by giant law firms that bill them in millions, and notwithstanding the fact that their HR executives and managers are topnotch and well-paid, companies are still losing their cases before the labor tribunals and courts. They were served adverse decisions and writ of executions that direct them to pay millions to workers. I have a favorite example involving a global company, manufacturing and selling consumer goods and represented by a very big and influential law firm, that has produced many top officials in government. This company lost a multi-million case to poor contractual workers who were represented only by a low profile lady lawyer, who used to be my law student. The question is why.

MAPASIGARBOHON SI DODONG BISAYA

May moingon ang binisaya gahi. Ang magbinisaya isug paminawon, mulahutay kon tugawon, dili muatras kon hagiton, moyangoyango kon paalagaron, mais ang paboritong kan-onon, dili mosibog bahala’g magkadusingot ug bisan pa’g asa mangabot. Gikan sa inibtanay’g bungot hangtod sa bangga sa ugatong paningkamot, kini dili magpaparot. Dili sama sa ubang pinulongan, sama sa inamerkano’ng lumoy pamation, dali ra kaayo’ng puklingon kon pagahiay na ang paminawon. Dali’ng modukoduko mura’g manggiulawon, humok pa kuno’s mamon. Sa pinulongang binisaya, kini buntogon.
