Senatorial Candidate Gary Alejano Wants Philippine Government To Recall All OFWs

16CC2028-A1F1-4298-9C3B-28A8F055BF81.jpegMANILA, Philippines (The Adobo Chronicles, Manila Bureau) – Senatorial candidate Gary Alejano is urging the Philippine government to recall all  Overseas Filipino Workers (OFWs) as a way to stop the employment of Chinese nationals in the country.

In a tweet, Alejano complained that 66 Chinese workers are working on the Chico River Irrigation Project — jobs that should have been for Filipinos.

He told The Adobo Chronicles that the hundreds of thousands of OFWs should be asked to come home so that they can be tapped to fill a few dozen jobs that are needed in connection with ongoing infrastructure and other development projects under President Rodrigo Duterte’s “Build, Build, Build” program.

”Ang trabajo sa Pilipinas ay dapat sa Pilipino,” he said. “Ang trabaho sa U.A.E. ay dapat sa Arabo.“
