Why Filipinos do not become business owners or entrepreneurs

For a majority of Filipinos, entrepreneurship does not seem to be a typical, expected path. This is not surprising, considering that in school, students are primarily taught to become employees after graduation.

  1. EDSA Revolution Anniversary – February 25 (Monday)
    – is this holiday already confirmed?! my friends & i are planning to go to the flower festival in baguio. we we’re hoping that this holiday is already confirmed so we can extend our stay there. hope you can help. thanks!!!

  2. Please read the whole RA. It has been a common misconception of people that movable holidays are automatic, but in relity, as stated by the law, it requires an EO from the President. Please get your facts straight and brush up on your reading before posting.

  3. How come nobody knows when the holidays are? The Congress should just pass a law and be done with it. There should be no order from the President. No wiggle-room. No mucking around. No endless bureaucratic debates and wasted taxpayer money. Pass a clear law and be done with it.
    The President is just the executive, just the doer. The Congress is the decider. Decide already! How screwed up is a government that can’t even organize holidays clearly? We should know what days are our holidays — working and non-working — from now until the turn of the century. Geez.
    And to think that there are some people who want the government to control MORE. Clue: if they can’t organize holidays, they can’t organize s$@*.

  4. i would like to know about the nov.01 holiday, hindi ba sya ma-sasandwich ng friday or monday? i mean saturday tlga sya, di ba friday pwedeng maging holiday sya pra long week-end?

  5. Hoping to see if October 31, 2008 declared as holiday by the President. Please be kind enough to notify me through my email if this so happened. Thanks in advance and more power to your site! God bless you all!

  6. hope n madeclare n holiday ang oct. 31…pra we can spend enough time sa fmily …bcoz during nov 1..ngka2ron tlga ng reunion hlos lhat …..

  7. October 31, 2008 is not a public holiday
    Malacanang announced that Oct. 31, 2008, the eve of All Saints’ Day, will not be declared a public holiday.
    “Oct. 31 will not be declared a public holiday,” said Executive Secretary Eduardo Ermita when asked on the possible declaration of the said date as nationwide public rest day in pre-celebration of the All Saints’ Day on November 1.
    Ermita said that the government is giving the employers the prerogative to allow their workers and employees to go on half day.
    @kei, yes it’s confirmed, December 1 is a holiday.

  8. If Nov 01 was Special Holiday, Nov 02 will no longer be a holiday. Previously Nov 1 was the regulat holiday while Nov 2 was the Special Holiday

  9. For private companies who have work during saturdays, i just want to kno if december 27 already declared as a non-working holiday? usually the government always assumes that saturdays is already non-working day but in reality a lot of Filipinos have work on Saturdays. Can you give me an idea if it is also included?

  10. This last Christmas break in the Philippines was a blast for those who are salaried, but a bummer for the daily worker. Here’s what happened:
    Christmas Day (25th) was on a Thursday, so Friday (26th) was declared a “special non-working holiday” (SNWH). Rizal Day (30th) fell on a Tuesday, so Monday (29th) was declared another SNWH. New Year’s Day was on another Thursday, so Wednesday (31st) and Friday (January 2, 2009) were declared SNWHs as well.
    The result was that except for the big malls and grocery stores, the country was practically shut down from December 25, 2008 through January 2, 2009. This stands out as another Philippine oddity: most people have lost their respect for holidays, even religious ones; malls open half-day even on Christmas Day and New Year.
    The total official holidays for 2008 was 15 days: Maundy Thursday, Good Friday, April 9 (Fall of Bataan), Labor Day (May 1), Independence Day (June 9, moved from June 12), Ninoy Aquino Day (August 21), National Heroes Day (August 25), All Saints’ Day (November 1), Bonifacio Day (December 1, moved from November 30), Christmas Day, Rizal Day, plus December 26, 29, 31 and the end of Ramadan. In addition, the poor daily workers lost a few days due to typhoons.
    Here’s what I propose to minimize the number of holidays, to increase productivity:
    Eliminate these holidays: Maundy Thursday, Good Friday, Fall of Bataan, Rizal Day.
    Grounds: These three holidays only accentuate the Filipino sentimental, melodramatic and defeatist culture. The death and resurrection of Christ should be celebrated together on Easter Sunday and on every Lord’s Day. And why celebrate the surrender of Bataan (and formerly of Corregidor) and the execution of the national hero?
    Combine these holidays into one day: Bonifacio Day (birthday – November 30) and Ninoy Aquino Day (birthday – November 27) should be combined into a National Heroes Day (to be celebrated on the last Monday in November); Independence Day and Rizal Day (June 12)
    Grounds: These holidays are so close together they should be combined. And what better way is there to celebrate the national hero than celebrating his birthday on the nation’s independence day?
    Eliminate Ninoy Aquino Day on August 21 and replace it with a “Philippine Revolution Day.”
    Grounds: Since Aquino’s birthday will be celebrated together with Bonifacio’s birthday on the last Monday in November, there is no need for another Ninoy Aquino Day. I propose instead a “Philippine Revolution Day” on the last Monday in August to commemorate the start of the Philippine Revolution with the Cry of Pugadlawin on August 23, 1896. This holiday would inculcate something that is lacking in the Filipino consciousness: the rich heritage of the Philippine Revolution.
    Bottom line, the following is my suggested 9-day holiday schedule, assuming that Rizal Day is still celebrated, a huge improvement from the 15 holidays in 2008:
    New Year (January 1)
    Labor Day (May 1)
    Independence Day (June 12)
    Rizal Day (3rd Monday in June)
    Philippine Revolution Day (last Monday in August)
    End of Ramadan (variable)
    All Saints’ Day (November 1)
    National Heroes Day (last Monday in November)
    Christmas (December 25)
    And here are a few other food for thought:
    * Why not move Independence Day to January 21, to celebrate the real inauguration of the First Philippine Republic by the First Philippine Congress in Malolos, Bulacan in 1899? We can cite as a parallel to this the Declaration of Independence by the Second Continental Congress of the United States on July 4, 1776. The Declaration of Independence read on June 12, 1898 in Kawit, Cavite, on the other hand, was written by a single individual, and signed by 98 individuals, not ratified by a congress in session.
    * I’m also for changing the national hero from Rizal to Bonifacio. Rizal may be a genius and a reformer, but he was not a leader of the Philippine Revolution. I do not know of any country in the world that has for its national hero one who was adamantly against a revolution for independence. He disowned it in a manifesto, “From the very beginning, when I first had notice of what was being planned, I opposed it, fought it, and demonstrated its absolute impossibility.” The case could be made that he was a traitor to his countrymen during the last days of his life, when he volunteered to serve as a doctor in the Spanish army in Cuba to avoid being implicated in the revolution. His move was in vain, because he was nevertheless implicated and arrested on his way to Cuba, taken back to Manila, and executed.
    * However, if his execution is to be “celebrated,” it could be held on January 1, since it is very close to New Year’s Day.
    * The Balintawak Monument should be renovated to make it at least as beautiful, dignified and signified as the Rizal Monument at the Luneta Park.
    * Finally, the most dimwitted holiday of all was when the Independence Day holiday was moved to June 9, Monday, because June 12, the real day, fell on a Thursday! In the U. S., there would be a revolution if, for example, the Independence Day holiday in 2007 was moved from July 4th (Wednesday) to July 2nd (Monday).

  11. Good day! I read in one of the local newspaper last week that Feb. 27, 2009 is a holiday. I would just like to know if July 27, 2009 is declared a holiday in the philippines. Is it a non-working or working holiday? thank you sir/madam.

  12. @Lydia, July 27 is the founding anniversary of the Iglesia ni Cristo. Although it is a “holiday,” it is a “working holiday” meaning people still have to attend work. It is also the day of GMA’s supposedly last SONA. Most of the time, this is declared a holiday for schools so that students won’t have to attend classes anymore but we’ll have to wait for a DepEd confirmation about this.

  13. I would like to ask if casual employees who are working in the local government units shall be paid on august 21, 2009.that date is special non-working holiday.

  14. Just want to ask why November 2 (All Souls Day) is not considered holiday for this year 2010 when it was declared in the previous year 2009?

  15. For this year’s holiday on February 22, 2010, will only be the students who will take a break?For this happened last year wherein we workers were reporting to work. Why is this happening?This is a national concern so why only students will take a break?Thank you.

  16. Shouldn’t May 3 2010 be the Labor Day holiday? Under RA 9492, the Monday nearest to May 1 shall be a holiday. Has anyone clarified this?

  17. Hi,
    Just want to ask why EDSA People Power Anniversary is holiday only for schools and why not in private sector? Does it mean that only students will celebrate there freedom instead of whole nation. Last year this was not declared as holiday, does it mean also that weather weather lang and pag celebrate ng EDSA People Power?

  18. hey, why are we not celebrating the EDSA People Power Anniversary?? it happened in february 25th 1986, then why not declaring february 25th this year as a NON-WORKING holiday to all….
    Goshhh…. come on! hope its holiday… please…please…. it would be unfair…

  19. pls,,let me know dun sa mga nakakaalam ng latest development,,im stil out here on vacation,, wana know kung holiday ang april 5, 2010 ? thanx po

  20. according to my friend whose mom works as an administrator of a government hospital, his mom is not required to go to work tomorrow since April 9 celebration was moved to April 5.
    better ask your immediate superiors for more details.

  21. Ililipat po ba ang holiday sa May 1 sa lunes, May 3? Wala po kasing nakalagay na “will not be moved” katulad sa iba. 🙂 tnx po

  22. i ask for the private employee if we have work on may 01, 2010 saturday or will be have an extension holiday on may 03, 2010 monday?,thanks and god bless

  23. may nakakaalam b dito kung gagawing half-day lang yung may7?
    to give way sa mga bbyahe sa mga province nila yung mga boboto sa may10..

  24. itigil na ang paglipat-lipat ng holiday sa araw ng monday. kung anong araw tumapat, yun na iyon.. maliban na lang kung sabado o linggo.

  25. will pres. noynoy declare aug. 1 a holiday in honor of his late mom? and since aug. 1 falls on a sunday, i wonder if he will move the date and declare aug. 2 (monday) a non-working holiday..

  26. why? supposed to be its an holiday. thats suck… why is it our president did not annouce that is an holiday. and its the timke for dead people. you know have some respect!!!

  27. hi. would anybody know if Pnoy has disregarded the holiday economics of gma? i think i heard from tv news sometime ago that he does not believe in holiday economics. but i am not very sure, tho. i just need to confirm if november 29 is still a non-working holiday in lieu of the 30th. thanks. =)


  29. I would like to know if the Araw ng Kagitingan is April 9,2011 Saturaday, is it move to April 8,2011 Friday. And also May 1,2011 Labor Day Sunday is it move to Monday May 2,2011.Thank you.

  30. @Febe A. Manugas, holidays are not going to be moved anymore this year, according to Malacanang. The original dates of the holidays will remain, unless the Palace announces a change.
    Today Feb. 16, Malacananang said that there will be no classes on all levels on Feb. 25 to commemorate the 25th anniversary of EDSA Revolution I. Feb. 25 however will be a regular working day for employees. However, the Palace is urging employers to allow their employees to leave early on that day.

  31. hay naku binoto kita para mapaunlad 2ng bansa,d para kung ano ano gawin mu..pakialamanan ba mga holidays..FYI alamin mu kung pano malu2nasan ang kahirapan d ung kung ano-ano pinapakailaman mu…

  32. grabee ka pnoy dapat bigyan mo ng cosiderasyun mga pinoy……dapat e move mo yung holiday into nearest monday or friday para maka pag bonding naman kami…..ur such a loserrrrrrrrr..di sana kita binoto..wala ka naman nagaw na tama sa pinas …lalong nalugmuk naman tayo sa kahirapan..dapat si villar nalng kami….

    • lol, nagbabasa kaba sa taas kung anung araw nahuhulog ung mga holidays, karamihan sa mga yan friday, saturday, sunday at monday nman, ang dami mo pa sinasabi… ang kahirapan nman hnd lang nakasalalay sa isang tao, kung iniisip mo na mababago ng isang presidente ang kahirapan sa isang bansa nang magisa lng, may mali jan sa pagiisip mo, prng bata… ang paglutas sa kahirapan ng tao nagsisimula sa sarili yan, puro knman kac reklamo.. tsk tsk

      • correct ka dyan algo .. masyado kang makasarili Pter_sia isipin mo na lang na pinipili ni Pnoy umangat ang ekonomiya naten. kung ganyan ang pananaw mo eh talagang kahit anong pilit ng gobyerno na bumangon eh wala pa rin mangyayari dahil nagpapabaya ka. imbis na makatulong ka para mabawasan ang mga taong tamad eh dinadagdagan mo pa lalo.

    • i agree wd u..”….WHEREAS, RA No. 9492 provides that holidays, except those which are religious in nature, are moved to the nearest Monday unless otherwise modified by law, order or proclamation;…” as stated in proclamation 84….
      yet this article says: “Here are the official holidays in the Philippines for the year 2011. Under Pres. Benigno “Noynoy” Aquino III, there is no more “holiday economics,” meaning, dates of the holidays are not anymore moved to the nearest Monday or Friday.” ….hmmmmmm

  33. What happened to the Bonifacio day? It was not mentioned in the Proclamation No. 84 of Pres. N. Aquino. Is it just forgotten or intentionally unwritten?

  34. Ano ba kayo?… Ayaw ng mga Intsik ng holidays, kasi wala daw kita. Si Noynoy pa? Parang tuta nga siya ng mga Intsik eh.

    • i think mas ok n d move ung holidays….ndi nman nten cenecelebrate ang mga ganitong events para lng magkabakasyon..cenecelbrate ito para alalahanin ang mga nangyari that time at kung ano ang nging epekto sten nito ngaun….

  35. sana sa may 2, 2011 monday . holiday ibang country nag declare sila, bakit dito sa pinas di nag declare si p-noy. bakit???????????????????????????//

  36. According to R.A. 9492 pwede nmn imove ang holiday… sana i move ni Presdent di lang nman puro trabaho ang buhay ng tao kelangan nia din mag pahinga… minsan lng nmn di ba

    • anong minsan lang? kaka-long break lang ng holy week ah?! sus! naghahanap lang ng dahilan para iwas trabaho. pwede ba magbago na ang mga tamad?

  37. Actually, if we are aware of our given rights and privelege as mandated by law, if a regular holiday such as May 1 Labor Day falls on Sunday the immediately following day, which is Monday, in this case, is a special holiday, (b) Sec. 9, Rule IV, Book III of the Labor Code.
    Di ba alam ng Malacanang un… or just taking advantage of the ignorant working public who is too dependent on the government?

  38. Kaya nga Labor Day dapat tayong magcelebrate ano ngyon kung nagfall sa Sunday e d gawing Monday to make it SPECIAL d b?

  39. haissst..anyway my bayad po ba ang May 1 khit ngfall ng sunday para saming mga daily paid??
    kasi according to Article 94 may 1 is regular haliday at wala nmn sinabing exception basta Regular Holiday bayad. No exception.

  40. haissst..anyway my bayad po ba ang May 1 khit ngfall ng sunday para saming mga daily paid??
    kasi according to Article 94 may 1 is regular holiday at wala nmn sinabing exception basta Regular Holiday bayad. No exception.

  41. NOYNOY is very stupid! Damn! I hate it! he has no sense of nationalism! He only gained the title “President” because of his Mom and dad’s achievement, and also, he is the last resort of the peolpe during the elections! How about Nov 2 and Bonifacio day??! If you want to earn the confidence of the people, please, give us reasonable REST DAYS!!!

  42. Maganda sana kung imove ang Nov.30 holiday to Nov. 28 or DEc. 2, para long weekend again.  Para yong gusto umuwi ng province or pumunta ng Manila eh mahabahaba naman bakasyon nila…kasama nako don he he

  43. Mga ingot pala kau, bakit ba kelangan baguhin ang Holiday para lang sa inyong katamaran? hindi na matatawag na Bonifacio Day yon kung ililipat nyo ng petsa.

  44. Dear P’noy:
    Wala po bang bagong proclaimation for Holidays this Christmas Season? Sa HR po kasi di ko alam kung kailan at how should I give vacation to them.
    Thank you very much.

  45. Hindi po ba idedeclare as holiday ang Dec.26 at Jan.2..? Kasi po bitin naman ang vacation kinabukasan my pasok na kagad di man lang pa nagkakabounding..hinihintay pa nman ng lahat ng tao ang x’mas at new year dahil yung lang ang time para magkasama-sama..thanks..

  46. Dear Mr. President
    Can you declare Dec 26, 2011 & Jan 12, 2012 as special non working holiday? sabi nga nila for the sake of family bonding!

  47. Dear Mr. President
    Not all Filipinos are goverment employees, We celebrate Christmas too.. I support you but work have someone to check more for you, we need family bonding too..

  48. kawawa nman po ung ibang private sector,, specially have saturday works,, employers not give company discretion to all his or her employees….dapat fair buti pa ung under goverment more bonding of all his or her family….but 75% are under private sector & 25% no company discrition…..
    Happy holidays nalang to all under government & under private sector have company discr.tion

  49. kaya marami nagagalit kay PNoy eh, pati dec 24 ndi idedeclare? tradition na yan since dati na special non-working holiday yan eh. naman! 🙁

  50. pres. declare nyo yung dec. 31, 2011 as special holiday pate jan. 2012 wag nyo gaanung intindihin ang mga negosyante naten importante mkapagspend ng time ang mga tao sa pamlya nla kase ang mga work force naten kailangan den ng rest at quality time with their family…..

  51. Mahirap talaga President Noy if  your campaign funds came from the circle of businessmen..but wait, Filipinos who sincerely voted for you with the hope of fair treatment are a million in numbers so please do not change the number of holidays! Imagine, december 26 may pasok  and 31… palibasa wala ka gf to celebrate your moment… what about the families whose time to bond is only this holiday??????????????? i campaigned for you…. and i do not want to regret it……….

  52. Grabe sa tipid sa holiday.halos la na pahinga sa work.wag naman ganyan .isipin din mga manggagawa.move on pinoy.di porket ginawang holiday noon ni GMA ayaw mo nang I holiday.move on.lahat ng ginawa ni GMA kahit tama na ayaw mo pa rin.la perpektong tao.lahat na dinamay mo sa pambebengga mo.tama na at Baka Mapalitan ka agad nyan.remember people power.magtrabaho ka muna para makaahon sa hirap ang bansa.matuto ka ring sumunod sa batas.di ikaw ang batas.

    • hindi naman kasalanan ni noynoy naging sunday ang December 25 at January 1. kaya wag niyong i blame sa presidente kung bakit konti lang ang holidays.
      at isa pa, bakit naman niya i mo move yung Christmas at New Year holiday? Bakit? Dec 26 ka ba nag cecelebrate ng Christmas? yung December 24, Christmas day na ba yun?
      ang sa inyo kasi e para lang maka receive ng sweldo kahit hindi nagtratrabaho. yun yun. Hindi niyo naman talaga isini celebrate ang tunay na essence ng holiday. Dati namang ganyan sa dati pa nating presidente. Si Gloria lang ang nagbago dahil kinukuha niya ang simpatiya ninyo para sa korapsyon niya. Yun yun.

  53. ang dami nyo pang sinasabi kung ayaw nyong pumasok wag!!!!gamitin nyo leave nyo, that’s why we have VL / SL to use it…hirap kc gusto pro libre…nasanay kc.. sometimes we need to support the decisions of our leader to make works if your always becomes awkward to the leader walang mangyayari sa company, group etc…best example is our country…maski sinung pinakamagaling na tao mamuno satin walang mangyayari hangat wala unity…. 

  54. Here still hoping na ma declare dec. 24, 2012 (Monday)  na special holiday so that we can have time to visit our province deny kami last 2011 kasi may pasok ang dec. 24 eh …kasi di naman lahat ng company wala pasok ng saturday many companies still have work during saturday..good luck and more power to President Noy this  2012.

  55. wag nyo sisihin si noynoy, wala kasing pamilya kaya walang idea kung gano kahalaga mga family gatherings, dec 25 ang christmas, ilalabas mo mga anak mo para mamasyal at mag family bonding pero dapat dec 25 din pabalik ka na ng manila dahil may pasok na kinabukasan, di naman pwedeng dec 26 ng umaga dahil yung solution ni Senator Gordon sa grabe at lalo pang gumagrabeng traffic ayaw nilang entertain at pag isipan. sana sa susunod na presidential election may manalong maayos mag isip, yung hindi pang public display lang ang role.
    double check nyo nga yung mga magsasaka sa tarlac na pinaratrat nila ng bala, kaya tayo work work lang parang mga alipin, hard-core communist style parang north korea lang.
