The Business Process Outsourcing (BPO) industry is currently one of the most lucrative, dynamic, and fastest growing industries in the Philippines.
Working in a BPO industry is no joke. It’s like you’re being slaved by other races while you are working in your own country. Working and talking endlessly throughout your shift. The worst part is, you had a night shift then a 2hrs sleep and then a sudden change of schedule. ON A MORNING SHIFT.
(a)In the past 10 years, BPOs have contributed to the positive growth rate of the country’s economy. It has given millions of jobs to Filipinos, which in turn made our country the most competitive economic power in Asia.
However, many people in our society today still have a notion that being a call center agent is a cheap job and fit only for those who don’t have dreams and goals in life.
But this girl, Antonette Delos Santos, defended all the call center agents out there.
One summer of 2017, Antonette posted her conversation with a friend but went foul. That was where she stood up. It reaped a whopping over 9000 reactions and 5000 shares from angry netizens. The said post was already taken down for the unknown reason.
(a)Read her post below.
“It baffles me how some people can be so judgemental and insensitive. Seriously? I didn’t expect na aabot sa ganto since you’re my friend. Ex-friend pala. It would be much better kung mawawalan ng ganitong ka-toxic na tao sa buhay ko. Kaya kayo people, just please, don’t belittle others. Wag niyong ila-LANG yung mga trabahong gaya niyan because there’s nothing wrong with it. It’s a decent job. Walang nag-aagrabyado and natatapakang tao. Lalo na at yung trabaho na yun ang bumubuhay sa inyo. HAVE SOME RESPECT AND BE GRATEFUL INSTEAD. I just can’t deal anymore with the twisted minds of some people. Hay. I pity you. IF YOU DON’T KNOW THE REAL STORY, DON’T JUDGE, DON’T SAY ATROCIOUS THINGS, BETTER SHUT YOUR MOUTH NA LANG”
