Seventy percent of Pinoys are worried about the rising number of foreign Chinese workers in the Philippines, according to the Social Weather Stations (SWS) survey.

Based on the Third Quarter 2019 Social Weather Survey, conducted from September 27-30, 2019, seventy percent of Filipinos are worried about the rising number of Chinese workers. Thirty one percent said they were “worried a great deal” while 39% said they were “somewhat worried”.

The September 2019 survey fielded three questions to 1,800 adults who are 18 years old and above. They were asked the following questions:

1) “How many are the foreign Chinese working in your locality?”,

2) “How worried are you about the increasing number of foreign Chinese working here in the Philippines?”, and

3) “How much do you agree or disagree with this statement: ‘The increasing number of foreign Chinese working here in the Philippines is a threat to the country’s overall security.’”

Based on the survey results, 52% of Filipinos consider the rising number of Chinese workers in the country as a threat to the country’s security.

The survey found that 27% strongly agree and 25% somewhat agree.

Meanwhile, 14% somewhat disagree and 13% strongly disagree.

Twenty-one percent are undecided about the rising number of Chinese workers in the country being a threat to the country’s security.—AAC
