The United States of America will be needing thousands of caregivers in the next 10 years according to US-based Pinoy labor group, Pilipino Workers Center.
According to the Executive Director of Pilipino Workers Center, the baby boomers in America are already in the retirement age. Every day there are about 10,000 people turning 65 years old in the US. It is projected that America will have a million caregiver shortages in the next 13 years.
PWC Executive Director explained that the profession will not be affected by America first policy of President Donald Trump since their citizens do not usually apply or interested for the caregiver position. Primary reason is that the salary and job stability is low so Immigrants are one who applies for the job.
