My opinion for the news today
I just could not believe it to read in the news today (Marianas Variety) about the 3 Filipinos that have not been renewed because of their participation for the Dekada Movement. Are you guys saying that your employers have not being fair? HELLO! Do you guys think that those employers of you will be happy to see their employees supporting the Dekada? If you guys do not want to lose your jobs it will be nice if you focused on providing good work to your employer rather than spending you energies on a group that seems more interested in having you leave your jobs and go to the US. One more thing, if Dekada really was just about human rights etc. they would have be working to assure that long-term workers had the privilege to remain in the CNMI to look for another job if they lose their jobs rather than on having the ability to leave your jobs and the CNMI. Also, if Dekada is about rights then why did they want to have rights start after 10 years? What type of "rights" group starts by excluding so many Filipinos and others from receiving the rights that the group want? I just really hope that those of us (Filipino) here in the CNMI will now realize that there no need to be in that group as they excluded so many from the protection and rights they wanted and now it looks like they can't even protect themselves. I bet they are going to use CNMI labor laws ( the same ones they think are so bad) to dispute their releases in an attempt to stay in the CNMI, though they want to leave for the US they do not want to leave and go home.
