By Prince Golez
At least 17,000 job opportunities will be up for grabs at a job caravan that will be held at the Subic Gymnasium on February 9.
This was revealed by Build, Build, Build (BBB) committee chairperson Anna Mae Lamentillo in a media briefing in Malacanang Wednesday.
“The BBB jobs caravan is the government’s immediate response to the affected workers of the Hanjin Heavy Industries and Construction Corporation Philippines,” said Lamentillo.
A total of 75 contractors will hire for vacancies at the job caravan.
“As a situationer po, ‘yung Department of Labor and Employment, sinabi po nila na kung dati po 17,307 ‘yung employed workers noong March 2018, it has decreased ngayon po by 3,745,” according to her.
“So we expect that the Jobs, jobs, jobs caravan will be able to provide jobs doon po sa mga displaced workers natin dito po sa closure,” Lamentillo said.
She added that the event is open to the public.
