DOLE employs almost 3000 people in Legazpi City.

Since the Department of Labor and Employment launched the Tulong Panghanapbuhay sa Ating Disadvantaged/Displaced Employees (TUPAD) program in 2019, at least 3,258 displaced workers and underemployed people of this city have benefited (DOLE).

In an interview on Monday, Diosdado Raeses, the chairman of the Legazpi City Public Employment Services Office (PESO), claimed the DOLE had downloaded PHP12 million to the city government of Legazpi for use as TUPAD beneficiaries’ pay.

According to him, his office recorded 1,013 program recipients in 2021, the majority of whom were tricycle drivers and other workers who had been displaced by the pandemic.

“The DOLE has handed the PESO Legazpi another 144 TUPAD recipients who have already begun their clean-up drive in their respective villages and will earn their pay in 10 days,” says the statement, “Raeses remarked.

The new recipients, he continued, were highly recommended by the heads of the individual communities, including those from the Legazpi City Women’s Federation (LCWF), who were in need of seasonal work owing to the current coronavirus disease (Covid-19) health crisis.

“All we have to do now is wait for the additional PHP5 million sanctioned by DOLE Secretary Silvestre Bello III for another 1,400 TUPAD beneficiaries in Legazpi City,” said the group “Raeses threw in his two cents.

He stated that all TUPAD workers are entitled to four hours of work per day for ten days in their respective villages.

“Here in Legazpi, we are very systematic in the implementation of the TUPAD program to always follow the minimum health protocol,” Raeses explained. “Every hour, we only assign 10 persons to work in the community clean-up drive and another 10 persons to follow the social distancing while they are working.”

He stressed that those who have benefited from the program in previous years can do so again this year, but the DOLE prioritizes those who have not yet been added to the roster of program users.

TUPAD is a community-based package of aid that provides displaced employees, underemployed workers, and seasonal workers with emergency employment for a minimum of 10 days and a maximum of 30 days, depending on the nature of the task to be completed.
