Before the reclamation, the major source of livelihood of the inhabitants of Barangay Don Galo came from fishing. Those living near the shoreline took advantage of the rich and abundant sea life Manila Bay offered. Today, due to the reclamation undertaken and the polluted waters of Manila Bay, only a handful of fishermen ply their trade. However, the opening of E. Aguinaldo Boulevard (Coastal Road), opened new markets and business opportunities to several enterprising people. Many put up stores and engaged in small business which enabled them to send their children to school and attain a higher degree of standard of living. Because of its proximity to Manila and business centers, the majority of the populace is now gainfully employed in big companies, factories and commercial establishments, while others are either professional, businessmen, drivers, and skilled artisans.
