Filipino construction worker gets a job offer in NZ for returning lost wallet

For an ordinary construction worker earning at least P650 per day, finding a wallet with P20,000 bills could be more like winning the days local lotto. But, Adones Datalayta's financial status did not lure him to take the bait of chances.

Adones Datalayta

The family man Datalayta returned the lost wallet to its rightful owner. After getting featured on GMA's 24 Oras, he got the utmost interest of a New Zealand-based company, Farrell Group Ltd. to hire him as an overseas worker.

The good-hearted construction worker could not afford to avail a leave for just one day, in order to process time-consuming paper works and official procedures in seeking employment abroad.
Natatakot ako. Siyempre, mag-absent lang ako ng isang araw, apektado yung pang-gastos sa pamilya ko (I am afraid. Of course, if I commit an absence from job for jsut one day, my family's finaces will be affected)
After an assisted interview via Skype, Datalayta won Farrell Group Ltd.'s sounding yes for a hire.

The group pledged to shoulder his flight expenses for New Zealand.

What the company said of the humble construction worker? He was praised for his genuine honesty. His kind is 'quite hard to find', the company said.
