The Story of the Common Filipino Pre and During Covid-19 Pandemic



Wazzup Pilipinas!

The story of the common Filipino before covid:

Wakes up every day at 4 a.m., travels for two hours to get to work, then another two hours to get home

The monotony continues for six months—because most of these workers are only under contract for a short period... Big companies hire people only for a short while so they can’t be forced to regularize employees, who later struggle again to find another job

The story of the common Filipino during covid:

Wakes up every day at 4 a.m or even earlier., then walks, bikes or takes chance getting a ride from the few public transpo available, while wearing a face mask and avoiding close physical contact with others else getting arrested for violating quarantine protocols - for several hours trying to get to work, then does the same routine going home, but worried about infecting family members since mass testing is not among the plans of the national government so takes a bath before checking up on their kids 

While for the many who got laid off or had to close down their small business, logs on to social media to post their items for sale or barter. Government then schemes to tax online selling and bartering.

We are unsure when this monotony will end

Next election, please make sure that we vote for only those who truly understands and emphatizes with the plight of the common people, and makes it as his top priority.

While some of us are so in touch with reality, many are a major disappointment. Hindi lahat ng oras at pagkakataon kailangan mong maging masaya.  Minsan kailangan mo rin buksan ang kaisipan sa nangyayari sa paligid mo.

When so many things that are happening affect so many lives, insisting on positivity will only make us insensitive, uncaring or worse, a privileged douche.

As Archbishop Desmond Tutu once said, "If you are neutral in situations of injustice, you have chosen the side of the oppressor. If an elephant has its foot on the tail of a mouse, and you say that you are neutral, the mouse will not appreciate your neutrality."

Hati rin ba ang pag-iisip mo kung ikaw ay kakaliwa o kakanan? Anong direction ba ang mas kapaki-pakinabang sa iyo lang o sa nakakarami?
