problem workers, story no.27


FARMING can be frustrating, too. Especially when you don’t get the right workers. Just like the fellow below whom we met some years back.

BIRTH PAINS – Jay who was new in farming grew high-value vegetables on two hectares of rented land in Cavite. Like many other farmers, he had encountered what may be called birth pains. But he was able to solve his problem with a simple solution.

ABUSIVE LEADER – What was his problem? At first he got farm workers who were all men. The first leader had made the farm house a “virtual motel”. Many of the workers spent the night in beer houses so they could not work properly during the daytime.

SIMPLE SOLUTION – How did Jay solve his problem? Very simple. He fired the leader and in his place recruited two “Manangs” to join the work force of ten. The two older responsible women disciplined the young male workers. Anybody going out drinking at night will be fired.

Problem solved!
