Labor Department Gives Jobs To Ondoy Victims

The Department of Labor & Employment has extended its arms to help the victims hit by the typhoon Ondoy on September 2009. The typhoon caused so much wreck and havoc when most part of Metro Manila was flooded, causing hundreds of death victims, while houses and business establishments were deeply submerged in water.

Labor Secretary Marianito Roque said that a short-term and emergency wage employment program will provide flood victims of at least 15 days work, mainly in de-clogging operations, and in helping with the reconstruction of damaged infrastructures such as school buildings and drainage systems.

Roque said subsistence workers who lost their income and livelihood sources due to the calamity will be prioritized especially those whose properties were totally damaged and those formerly engaged in a particular craft or skill.

The program will be implemented in Metro Manila, Central Luzon, and Calabarzon area.
“It will serve as a bridging mechanism aimed at helping the beneficiaries cope while seeking to recover and regain their livelihood and income sources from the destruction brought about by “Ondoy.” Roque further states.
