NAIA Hiring Pasay Seniors To Become Ushers For 15 Days
NAIA HIRING PASAY SENIORS – The Ninoy Aquino International Airport (NAIA) is hiring about a hundred seniors from Pasay City as airport employees.
This came after the local government closed a contract with the Manila International Airport Authority, Department of Labor and Employment, and the Ang Probinsyano party-list group.
According to an article from Inquirer, the memorandum of agreement (MOA) that was signed stated that the senior citizens will be working as ushers for 15 days at NAIA.
Their schedule would be three hours in the morning, followed by another three in the afternoon. With regard to the workload, they will be given tasks that are not physically taxing.
As per the article, this could include guiding passengers to assigned areas, the right lines, or the proper offices who can answer their queries. Each of the seniors will be paid P537 daily, which is the minimum wage in Metro Manila.
The seniors are aged from 60-70 and were chosen based on their ability to work and physical condition. According to the Pasay City government, the project aimed to provide seniors with opportunities.
They believed that this could maximize their productivity, get them to mingle with people, and have an income. Based on the city’s Office of Senior Citizen Affairs, there were more than 37,000 seniors residing in Pasay.
The project truly provides the opportunity for our elderly to get back into society. Often times, the public views the elderly as people who can’t contribute to the community, however, we need to change that mindset.
