P-Noys’ Job fairs: A “moro moro” scheme of the worst kind! ‘Pantawid sa Kalsada! Panlilinlang sa masa! ”
“Sobra na! Tama na! Pahirap sa masa, Wakasan na!”, slogans shouted by thousands of workers belonging to the biggest contingent Sanlakas-PLM bloc heeded for Mendiola for a concelebrated mass with other labor groups.
The P-Noy administration showcase of pursuing job fairs in todays’ Labor Day Celebration is practically a rehashed of his former predecessors.
There is no significant move on the part of the government to commemorate today’s occasion, the Filipino workers were made to believe that the government is doing its job in these hard and trying times. Similar strategies employed in the past were never successful but a total failure. In terms of policies and programs, nothing is new to an administration that is reduced to being a second rate trying hard copycat.
Job Fairs and “Patawid sa Kalsada Program” were palliative solutions that will never alleviate the conditions of the Filipino people.
The P-Noy administration is offering 50,000 jobs, a far cry from the staggering three millions unemployed Filipinos needed for employment in the country. The people are only being fooled to appease the growing discontent and frustration.
“Moro-moro ang ginagawa ng gobyerno at ang programang “Pantawid sa Kalsada” ay klarong panlilinlang sa masa!” exclaimed by Leody De Guzman, BMP President. during the rally in front of the University of Santos Tomas where the biggest contingent of the Sanlakas-Partido Lakas ng Masa (PLM) numbering over 5,000 people converged and held a program.
Mr. De Guzman further added that “What kind of direction P-noy is heeding, if this trend will continue, this administration is bound to fail. He was able to buy for himself a Porsche but nothing to the workers!”
The group depicted a replica of P-Noy’s Porsche with a sign of “Wala akong pakialam” placed on the chest of a rallyist clad in a barong with the face covered by a mask of President Noynoy Aquino.
The Sanlakas-PLM bloc marched towards Mendiola to join with other various labor groups to a concelebrated mass by NASSA, a social action arm of the CBCP (Catholic Bishops Conference of the Philipppines). (30)
