PASCN DP 2001-05: Labor, HRD and Globalization: The Filipino Worker in a Global Economy

In a world of greater economic integration, strengthening trade linkages, unceasing technological changes and weakening institutions, workers are concerned about their incomes and security in their workplaces. Because of this uncertainty, coupled by large negative reactions against globalization in developed countries, policy makers have expressed skepticism on the benefits of globalization especially as this relates to the labor market. Several issues affect the relationship between greater openness to the world market and human resource development. With the fall in protectionism and breakdown of centrally planned governments, Filipino workers are greatly exposed to the uncertainties that come along with globalization. These include the fear of immiserization, the possibility of unemployment, the concern of labor standards, the dismay over worker participation and the inadequacy of higher educational institutions. The crucial role of state is to create and strengthen the institutions that can provide the necessary economic programs and political incentives and promote long-term development of worker quality and benefit both the individual worker and society.
