Cong. Villarica touched by likes, comments from FB supporters
Bulacan 4th District Representative Linabelle Villarica expressed gratitude to Facebook users who showed their support for her speech on extending the maternity leave for female workers.
“Your likes and comments yesterday was heartwarming. Because our initial attempt at FB Live was not at par, I’m attaching the following link for a clearer version of yesterday’s speech at the plenary yesterday on the cause for extending maternity leave from today’s 8.5 weeks to ILO’s recommendation of 12 to 14 weeks,” said the politiko on Facebook.
“It’s a good investment for the country, essential to achieve gender equality, beneficial to the health of both mother and child, and, in the long run, advantageous to employers. Look up the lively debate on the website: congress.gov.ph,” she added.
