Majority of Pinoys worry about increasing number of Sino workers in PH

Seven in 10 Filipinos are worried about the seemingly increasing number of foreign Chinese workers in the Philippines, a Social Weather Stations survey has found out.

In the nationwide survey conducted from Sept. 27 to 30 among 1,800 adult respodents, 70 percent were worried about the rising number of Chinese nationals working in the Philippines while 30 percent were not worried about it.

About 31 percent said they are worried a great deal, 39 percent said they are somewhat worried, 19 percent said they are not too worried, and 11 percent said they are not at all worried.

The proportion of those who were worried about the increasing number of foreign Chinese working in the Philippines is highest in Metro Manila at 75 percent, followed by Visayas at 71 percent, rest of Luzon at 69 percent, and Mindanao at 67 percent.

The SWS also found that 27 percent strongly agreed and 25 percent somewhat agreed that the increasing number of foreign Chinese working in the Philippines is a threat to the country’s overall security while 14 percent somewhat disagreed and 13 percent strongly disagreed. Twenty-one percent are undecided about the matter.

The net agreement that the increasing number of foreign Chinese working in the Philippines is a threat to the country’s overall security is highest in Metro Manila at “very strong” +38 (59 percent agree, 22 percent disagree), followed by the rest of Luzon at “moderately strong” +27 (53 percent agree, 26 percent disagree), Mindanao at “moderately strong” +21 (52 percent agree, 30 percent disagree), and Visayas at “moderately strong” +15 (45 percent agree, 30 percent disagree).
