But one problem for Filipinos to access this job is the "America First Policy" of President Donald Trump which means, jobs should be given first to Americans before the migrant workers.

But according to PWC, Americans don't like caregiving jobs because it is considered as a low-paying job that is why migrant workers fill in.

Another problem they see is the tension in the relationship between US and Philippines due to President Rodrigo Duterte's remarks against America.
