Isko Moreno Urges Fast Food Chains To Hire Elderly, PWDs in Manila Outlets

ISKO MORENO – Mayor Isko Moreno asked all fast-food chains in Manila to hire senior citizens and persons with disabilities (PWD).

Actor turned politician Francisco “Isko” Moreno Domagoso is the 27th Mayor of the city of Manila. He’s among the politicians who had big dreams for his country.

He grew up dirt-poor in Tondo, Manila and learned how to earn sources of income at a very young age. He collects used bottles and newspapers from his neighbors then sell them to a local junk dealer.

Now that he’s in the position to make orders in his beloved city, he used his power to stand with the poor and make their life better.

Recently, Batang Maynila Updates released a video of Isko Moreno asking the fast-food chains in all Manila outlets to employ Persons with Disabilities (PWD) and senior citizens.

The 44-year-old politician encouraged all fast-food chains such as Jollibee and McDonalds to accept 2-4 PWD or elderly in their company.

“Tinatawagan ko kayo ng pansin, makipag tulungan kayo sa aming PESO. Wag nyo nang hintayin yung batas,” he said.

Isko Moreno believed that lots of elderly people are still eager to work and earn some income but they weren’t allowed due to their age.

“Gusto ko sa mga Foodchain, lahat kayo nasa lungsod ng Maynila. Panawagan ko sa inyo hire Senior Citizens, hire PDWs, give them chance, opportunity to earn hanggat kaya pa nila,” Moreno said.
