MANILA, Philippines – Inaasahan ng Department of Labor and Employment (DOLE) na mararamdaman na ngayon ng sektor ng paggawa ang pag-unlad ng ekonomiya ng bansa.
Ayon kay Labor Secretary Rosalinda Baldoz, ang 7.8% GDP growth sa 1st quarter ng taon ay posibleng makatulong sa pagpapababa ng unemployment rate sa bansa at sa problema ng mga mangagawa sa informal sectors.
Ang informal sector workers ay mula sa hanay ng mga vendors, jeepney drivers, construction workers at agricultural sector workers na tinatayang nasa 15-milyon.
“Kung lalaki yung wage and salary, sa manufacturing then yan talaga yung may regularity ng income pati security ng job.”
Napagkasunduan kanina ng mga labor group at 23 ahensya ng gobyerno na tulungan ang mga mangagawa sa informal sectors.
Ayon kay Baldoz, bukod sa tulong na pangkabuhayan ay sisikapin din ng gobyerno na maging miyembro ang mga ito ng SSS, PAGIBIG at Philhealth.
“So yung kanilang need for medical insurance, yung kanilang need for employers compensation pag nagtatrabaho sila tapos nagkaroon ng aksidente, nasugatan o nagkaroon ng injury and worst minsan namamatay papaano yung naiiwan nila so ito yung benepisyo na magbibigay sa kanila ng ganitong protection.”

MANILA, Philippines —The Department of Labor and Employment (DOLE) investigated the alleged anomaly in the application of overseas employment certificate (OEC) in the Philippine Overseas Employment Administration (POEA).
It can be recalled that DOLE initially suspended for 12 days the release of OECs to prevent what it claims as the existing corruption in the agency.
DOLE Secretary Silvestre Bello III said that they will implement new guidelines in POEA to ensure that OECs will not be used for illegal recruitment activities.
“We are coming up with a major revamp in POEA to see to it that the issue of corruption is addressed,” said Sec Bello. — UNTV News & Rescue
MANILA, Philippines — The employees of the Social Security System (SSS) have expressed their disappointment when one commissioner made a public disclosure of an alleged stock trading among four commissioners amid the ongoing investigation into the matter.
They feared that this action could result in SSS stock market crash.
“SSS is the major player in the local stock market the trust of the international community in our systems has lost there is an effect in our economy. My message to my friend Commissioner La Viña is to avoid what we call trial by publicity because that is unfair to the institution,” said SSS union president, Amorsolo Compitente.
SSS members are also worried about its effect on their contributions.
“I hope our contributions will not be affected because when the time comes we will be using it when we are already senior citizens,” said Josefina Espenosina, an SSS member.
Another SSS member, Afaela Francisco said,“The fund of the SSS should be intact and they should give us our benefits because we need it.”
Meanwhile, SSS Chairman Amado Valdez said members have the right to know everything that’s happening inside the agency.
“At the end of the day, it is still a good thing for SSS that we were able to talk about the issue. No news is bad news. I looked at it positively,” said the chairman.
Valdez assured that the funds of SSS are intact and they are open for the investigation that the Lower House plans to conduct. — Grace Casin | UNTV News & Rescue
