Employment through Manila Bay Cleanup
« on: January 30, 2019, 09:51:17 PM »

Party-list solon Neil Abayon (AANGAT TAYO) recommended to the Duterte administration the rollout of a government-led massive jobs program that would hire millions of unemployed millennials and adult Filipinos to clean up Manila Bay, Laguna de Bay, clean up beaches, rivers, esteros, and plant trees.

Abayon put forth the idea as he commended the DENR and MMDA for their latest Manila Bay clean-up operations.

“The clean-up must be sustained and sustainable. This jobs-and-environment program can achieve this goal,” the Deputy Minority Leader said.

Citing Philippine Statistics Authority data disclosed last December, Abayon said the official national unemployment figure is 2.3 million while the underemployed are 6.7 million.

He also noted survey results of the Social Weather Stations which estimated there are about 9.8 million adult Filipinos who are unemployed.  (SWS

“For example, to quickly give jobs to one million Filipinos, the DENR, under the able leadership of Secretary Roy Cimatu, can hire them at 1,000 pesos a day per worker for 5 days in a month. That is P5,000 monthly. If you have two unemployed members of a family mobilized, that is P10,000 a month for that family.  Total cost of 1 million workers for P5,000 a month is P5 billion a month. Multiply that by 13 months, that is P65 billion in a year,” Abayon said.

To partly fund the jobs program, Abayon said the national government can impose “green fines” versus polluters and administrative fees on the proper disposal of plastic and other solid wastes.

"Given how much plastic Filipinos use daily, those fees can easily add up to help generate funding of P5 billion a month," Abayon, author of several pro-environment bills said. 

He also said the DENR can have an environment internship or apprenticeship program for the new graduates and college students, as well as for senior high school immersion as part of the larger program.

The deputy minority leader said the international community can pitch in with grants and technical assistance to reduce the financial burden on the national government.

“This is an idea many Filipinos  and other countries can rally behind because it cleans up the environment and greatly reduces unemployment and underemployment,” the congressman said. (END)
