Retraining them might be easier than changing their attitudes to change. Like say the jeepney modernization program that has been on the books for the past few decades. We highly skilled types that earn better than most know the benefits but the the majority's attitude towards it are largerly anti as they do not see the improvement on safety, convenience, air quality, noise level, reliability and availability. What is worse is that those in govt might offer a temporary stay on implementation by asking for bribes so owners of non-compliant vehicles that are decades old can operate an extra year. Sana the zeal of the drug war could be replicated to modernization of PUVs to something a man living in Forbes Park would be willing to take. Those types use mass transit abroad. Why can't our mass transit be almost at par? Tried and true solutions and best practices are being done abroad. Only those who have a financial stake on it will be anti. As for the NAIA expansion it has also been on the books for decades. But again politicians are unwilling to sign up on the offer as dozens of billionaires want to implement their airport yesterday. They're all waiting for a bribe to sign the relevant docs.
