Government assistance is provided to Central Luzon’s displaced transport workers.
In order to get them started on finding alternative means of income, at least 19 displaced transport workers in Central Luzon first received economic aid.
The funding comes from the government’s “EnTSUPERneur” program, which the Department of Transportation and the Department of Labor and Employment jointly implement to give public transportation operators and drivers who are affected by the Public Utility Vehicle Modernization Program and the Covid-19 pandemic alternative sources of income.
Land Transportation Franchising and Regulatory Board (LTFRB) regional chief Nasrudin Talipasan stated on Tuesday that the beneficiaries’ livelihood packages included rice retailing, sari-sari stores, egg retailing, fried chicken stands, and grocery items.
According to Talipasan, 30 more program participants would start receiving their “kabuhayan,” or livelihood packages, on August 30 and continue through September 9.
For workers in the transport sector who are impacted by the reform in the public land transport industry, he claimed that the program is of great assistance.
It says, “Ingatan at lalo pang palaguin at pagyamanin ang kaloob na pangkabuhayan sa inyo. Take care of and improve the livelihood assistance that has been provided to you by following the LTFRB’s instructions from now on. The LTFRB is currently accepting applications for such a program, Talipasan stated in a social media post.
