DOLE Offers 1,500 Emergency Jobs To Victims of Ondoy

Date Posted: Oct 7, 2009

The Department of Local Employment (DOLE) will provide emergency wage employment to marginalized workers in areas who are hardly affected by the recent typhoon Ondoy.

Labor Secretary Marianito Roque has already issued an immediate activation of DOLE’s emergency employment assistance program that would provide short term and emergency wage employment to affected workers, particularly those who lost income and livelihood due to Ondoy.

About 1,450 jobs will be offered to workers from the National Capital Region (NCR), Central Luzon and Region 4 or the CALABARZON area.

Roque said that DOLE officials from the mentioned regions were now identifying target beneficiaries in the most affected areas from the three regions in coordination with local government units (LGUs).

Hired workers will help in clearing and de-clogging operations that typhoon Ondoy has caused. They will also help in cleaning operations and repairs in infrastructures such as buildings, day care centers, schools, drainage, irrigation systems, streets, and other areas and facilities wrecked by the typhoon.

About 100 jobs will be given each to people in Marikina, Quezon City, Pasig, Pateros, and Taguig. 50 jobs will be given to Caloocan, Malabon, Navotas, Valenzuela, San Juan, Muntinlupa and Mandaluyong.

Workers from Bulacan and Pampanga will be assisted 200 and 100 jobs respectively. Affected workers from Rizal will get 100 jobs and 150 jobs will be offered to workers from Cavite as well.

“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,” Roque said.

Workers will be paid a minimum daily wage during the program’s duration that would cover at least 15 days.
