People’s Champ Manny “Pacman” Pacquiao took to Instagram to post a photo of his old employee ID and shareed an inspiring story.

As seen in Pacquiao’s post, he started working at the age of 15 as a laborer for a company called LA Construction Corp. in Malabon, Manila.

Based on the date on the ID, Pacquiao worked in the said company back in 1994, which was a year before he decided to pursue a career in professional boxing.

“My job when I was 15 years old when I didn’t have a fight was working as a construction worker for $4 per day,” he captioned the post.

He also included a Bible verse which reads, “I know what it is to be in need, and I know what it is to have plenty. I have learned the secret of being content in any and every situation, whether well fed or hungry, whether living in plenty or in want.”

Netizens flooded the comments section saying that Pacquiao’s story inspired them.

From working as a laborer who earns $4 or P200 a day back then, Pacquiao is now a world-renowned boxer who has several properties, business, and a net worth of Php2,946,315,029.93 or more than $55.54 million, according to his 2018 SALN report.
