PWDs in the BPO Industry

Many Pinoys with Disabilities may not know that the BPO (business process outsourcing) industry has employed so many PWDs, some of them like Mr. Baradi in the video, have climbed the corporate ladder to become managers, supervisors or highly-paid specialists. The problem with many companies in the Philippines is that they have not been treating PWDs like regular employees, meaning they have been doing their fair share of the work but not paid like a non-disabled worker. It is discrimination that have led many PWDs to work menial jobs for lesser pay.
