Uh, wow,...ok. That's 8 minutes of my life I'll never get back.
So I guess the takeaway here is that there are NO jobs for Americans in the Philippines driving taxis.

What about this?:
Has anyone read/purchased this guidebook?

Maybe these guys should have bought a trike instead of a taxi. I know a guy in Cebu that makes 300 pesos($7) a day driving a trike.

Hmmm, that's about $210 a month. I hope he has time left for additional income sources. Does it take him all day to amass that $7?

Just teach English online - google Online ESL Teachers Wanted and get paid through Or when you go there, google " jobs, philippines", then in all those sites, in the search window, google Native English ESL teachers wanted. You will get a few opportunities with Korean schools many of which only care if you are a native speaker. That's all.
The pay? some USD 700-1200 a month.
There you go. This is how you make a living in the Philippines.

Hell yes Winston!!!! This is awesome! I might as well import my 2004 Ford Crown Vic Police Interceptor to the Phils and run a taxi service!!!! Rather than to just let my car sit at home in the US, take it with me and put it to good use! Haha...its an option, just not sure how viable.

This one looks EXACTLY like mine (same color, everything) ... 99ae48.jpg

Filipinos may like Americans who spend money. But when it comes to Americans trying to eke out a subsistence, they can't be bothered. Moreover, I doubt they have a work permit for this type of activity. So they will likely be harassed, extorted, and/or deported by local police if they keep this up for any length of time.

Meanwhile, here in oriental-land (Taiwan), I could easily and legally make over US$2,000 driving a taxi as long as I did it full time and had my own car.

These guys are young and look good. They could do so much better (financially and socially) in many other parts of Asia.
