    Deciding not to aim the canons of compliance at union conferences but at their presidents is a desperate and doomed attempt finally to find a place where the exercise of coercive administrative power will work.

“It’s never been easier to speak up. It’s never been harder to be heard.” —Sam Neves

Filipinos have a well-deserved reputation for fun-loving ingenuity. Whatever the challenge or obstacle, they find a way to get around it with a smile on their faces and a joke to lighten the mood. There’s a reason that the best-known tourism slogan for the country is, “It’s more fun in the Philippines.” It’s true in countless ways, often despite a squeeze on resources.
