DOLE-X releases PhP 877K emergency employment salaries to Villanueva, MisOr workers
Villanueva, Misamis Oriental --- The Department of Labor and Employment, Regional Office No. X (DOLE-X), through its Eastern Misamis Oriental Provincial Field Office (EMO PFO), released the PhP 877,000.00 emergency employment salaries to 276 workers in the informal sector, through its Tulong Alalay Para sa Ating Displaced/Disadvantaged workers (TUPAD) Program on 3 February 2017 in the Local Government Unit (LGU) of Villanueva Gymnasium, this municipality.
 
Together with his team, DOLE-X EMO PFO Head Errol A. Natividad released personally the said salaries and witnessed by Looc Barangay Captain Consorcia Eduave.  
 
DOLE-X Regional Director Raymundo G. Agravante underscores TUPAD as a package of assistance that provides emergency employment for displaced workers, underemployed, and the unemployed poor, for a minimum period of 10 days and a maximum of 30 days, depending on the nature of work to be performed.
 
“In the Department, we aim to uplift the poverty situation of the beneficiaries. It is the continual advocacy of DOLE to let the beneficiary know that they have to take the responsibility in using their funds wisely,” Natividad expounded.
 
Natividad promoted the TUPAD program as a motivator for the workers to be more productive and utilize their earned income wisely.
 
Work sites were mostly along its Barangay Poblacion areas.
“The workers spent a whole day de-clogging street canals, sweeping the streets, and planting trees along the side streets. An assigned area coordinator supervised and monitored their work, as well as the schedules and areas of work will vary from the areas prioritized by the locality,” Natividad further explained.
      
Brgy. Capt. Eduave thanked DOLE-X for the services extended towards her constituents.  “TUPAD Program is very timely for them (workers) who are all in dire need of income since most are unemployed poor. Through this program, we were able to give them hope and opportunity to earn work experiences.
