ABS-CBN Refutes BIR Claim, Says 11,000 Employees Include Ghost Writers

MANILA, Philippines (The Adobo Chronicles, Manila Bureau) –  ABS-CBN is refuting a letter sent to Solicitor General Jose Calida by the Bureau of Internal Revenue (BIR)  that  the broadcast network has only 4,401 employees.

 ABS-CBN has consistently claimed that it has a total of 11,000 employees who will lose their jobs with the non-renewal of its franchise.

A spokesperson for the network told The Adobo Chronicles that while it is not denying the 4,401 number, he said that BIR Commissioner Caesar Dulay failed to include in his letter the remaining 6,599 ghost writers that it employs for its newscasts, teleseryes and other shows.

You see, even ghosts are entitled to get paid for work done.
