Help desk launched in Subic to assist displaced workers
An information and support help desk has been set up to assist displaced workers at the Subic Freeport Zone in finding new jobs or developing new skills.
The Subic Bay Metropolitan Authority help desk is being manned by personnel of the SBMA Labor Department’s Manpower Services Division and located at the former Landbank office near the freeport’s Rizal Gate, according to the SBMA.
SBMA chair and administrator Wilma Eisma said the help desk would be instrumental in helping Subic workers who lost their jobs during the pandemic to regain employment.
She said it would especially benefit workers living in the neighboring communities of Olongapo City, Zambales and Bataan.
“We have to do all that we can to restore lost economic opportunities because workers are among those who are very vulnerable under the prolonged effects of this pandemic,” the SBMA chief said.
“We need to build not just physical strength and immunity, but also the community’s financial capacity to withstand this health crisis,” she added.
