On average, a farmer’s salary in the Philippines makes about Php 100,000.00 per year.
It summed up in a month to Php 8,000.00, and Php 267.00 per day.
While it may seem to be a considerable amount, it is still barely enough to keep a typical family of Filipino farmers to get by.
On average, essential commodities are not that cheap at all today.
We live in a fast-phased world wherein everything changes rapidly, and if you can not keep up, you finish up getting the short end of the stick.
As farmers, humble and righteous they are, most of the time they do not get to have the luxury of splurging into things other than the necessities.
Day by day is a struggle to get their jobs done right in the quickest way possible to earn money and bring home food to their tables.
Most of the farmers in the Philippines live within the beautiful lands of the Philippines wherein its area lies with excellent crops and resources.
The problem is that they do not have the means to improve or modernize their current lifestyle and work environment.
The Solution to Farmer’s Salary in the Philippines
While this might seem wishful thinking, to help farmers in the Philippines, the people and the government should be the first one to step in making improvements.
For the people, it is encouraged that they help from their local farms and markets as this adds a lot to the farmers daily income.
As we know, farmers live their lives one day at a time.
This means that whatever it is that they have worked hard for the day, that’s all they get to take home.
So buying from those farmers directly, instead of choosing imported or commercialized produce, at least try to support local farmers instead.
As for the government, at best they should at least allocate more budget towards the farming industry as this ensures the farmer’s welfare as well as the quality of the products they produce.
