Mcdonalds

I think the first company should be McDonalds.

A lot of people in the Philippines don't have jobs and they could work at McDonalds because McDonalds doesn't need a collage degree and thast good for those who could not pay for collage. I don't think the Philippines has McDonalds so that would be good for them because of the low prices.

The Philippines will be gaining more money from that company.

Wa-lmart

Wal-Mart would be a great company for the Philippines because they produce clean and fresh fruits.

They provide clothing at the cheapest, they have low deals.

People in the Philippines can also work at Wal-mart to earn their pay.

Wal-Mart doesn't exactly need a college degree, and that's good for the people who couldn't afford going to college.

CVS

CVS is a good company to go to the Philippines because they provide medicine.

They provide medicine cosmetics, and daily supplies.

They also provide a Pharmicist for the medicine.

I don't think the Philippines has CVS so that would be good for them.

Joans

Joan's is a fabric store/ company.

They provide fabric and sowing needles at low prices.

Joans should go to the Philippines because the Philippines have poverty and they don't have many companies to fix that and provide clothing for the children and they need joans to make clothing and material needed around the house.

Another reason would be because they import fabric.

Wal-greens

Walgreens also provides medicine and a pharmacy career.

They provide materials such as hand washing soap, bath soap, towels, they provide daily

stuff you would naturally need.

Its good for the Philippines to have it because I don't think they already have it and its good if you want a job with low pay, or high pay if you want to be a pharmacist.

They provide medicine which is important in the Philippines with unemployment meaning no jobs and no pay if they were to have a family relative that is really sick from the pollution in the air or natural sickness.
