Pinoys usually fill up the caregiving jobs in the US and with the increasing number of retirees, the demand for the profession is expected to rise in a few years.

According to the Pinoy Workers Center, there are about 10,000 people turning 65 years old in the US daily.  Thus, a shortage in caregivers is projected in the next 13 years.

The center added that the profession will not be affected by America first policy of President Donald Trump since Americans do not usually apply for the caregiving jobs because of the low salary and low job stability.  Immigrants, usually Pinoys, are usually filling up for the jobs. 

To qualify for the job, one must undergo Caregiven NC II training offered by TESDA and accredited schools. The duration range from 3 months to 6 months depending on the schools offering the course.
