MANILA, 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.“
MANILA, Philippines (The Adobo Chronicles, Manila Bureau) – Reelectionist Senator Nancy Binay has called for a total ban on the employment of foreign workers in the Philippines. Her proposal has outraged Overseas Filipino Workers (OFWs) who say this will impact their own employment abroad.
But Binay is sticking to her guns.
In an exclusive interview with The Adobo Chronicles, Binay defended her proposal saying that the ban will not affect OFWs since “they’re really considered domestic, not foreign.”
Pressed to elaborate further, the Senator said, “eh di ba mga OFWs natin ay nagtratrabaho abroad bilang domestic help? So hindi sila considered foreign.” (isn’t it a fact that our OFWs work abroad as domestic help? So they’re not considered foreign.)
Ladies and gentlemen, presenting your reelectionist Senator…
