Read to the end to make sense of this posting and why I have it here.
I have spent quite a few hours in the last couple weeks with a local (at least in this region) businessman discussing various things that he was involved in and his nascent project that has yet to open.
He is heavily involved in international business. He spoke quite lengthy of another businessman who is based in the Philippines. I do not have permission now to give the name of the company, and it is not relevant to this post.
The Philippine based businessman works with a company that makes a high cost, low volume product. Its high cost is due to the labor intensiveness. This man has found that due to the jobless rate he can get high quality labor, pay them a good rate for the area, and make a product that meets the high-quality standards of the industry. The work ethic that he has experienced has kept his turnover low.
Additionally, the metal is cut in the USA and shipped to the Philippines. It is then fabricated and completed in the Philippines, then shipped back to the United States. This unusual manufacturing process would usually cause you to think that it would raise the end cost of the product. Instead, it allows the end cost to be more affordable than otherwise possible.
Ok, the question is, why is this on the website for the children’s home and school? It’s very simple. This is one of the kind of jobs that we will be looking for and training our students to perform. We can help them keep an intact family while supporting that family instead of going overseas or to another island to work.
