While he is all for upholding the welfare of women, former Sen. Panfilo “Ping” Lacson is concerned that a proposal for a paid menstrual leave may do more harm than good to the ordinary working woman whose rights it is supposed to uphold, as well as to the country.
Lacson pointed out the economic implications of such a leave may lead to layoffs or even closing of some factories whose owners do not have the budget for it.
“Instead of benefiting the female workforce in general, it may have a negative effect on the economic and political stability of the country,” he said.
Ang mas pinabilis at mas maayos na rollout ng National ID at “Made in the Philippines” drive ang tutugon sa kawalan ng trabaho at inflation sa ilalim ng administrasyong Lacson sakaling palarin na mahalal sa 2022.
Sinabi ni Lacson sa lingguhang LACSON-SOTTO Meet the Press forum na ang National ID ay makakatulong sa gobyerno gumawa ng database para i-match ang kasanayan ng isang manggagawa sa mga job opportunities
“Kailangan madaliin para ang database natin malinaw at kitang kita sa skills ng tao para match mo sa job opportunities para mabawasan rate of unemployment,” sabi ni Lacson.
A more efficient rollout of the National ID and a “Made in the Philippines” drive will address joblessness and inflation under a Lacson presidency, Sen. Panfilo “Ping” M. Lacson said Thursday.
Lacson told the weekly LACSON-SOTTO Meet the Press forum that the National ID would help the government create a database to match workers’ skills with job opportunities.
“Kailangan madaliin para ang database natin malinaw at kitang kita sa skills ng tao para match mo sa job opportunities para mabawasan rate of unemployment (We should speed up the rollout of the National ID system so we can create a database that can match people’s skills with available job opportunities. This will address the problem of unemployment),” he said.
