Calls for 10K Cash Aid for Workers Held Outside the Senate
10K CASH AID – The members of “10K Ayuda Na Network” are pushing for the P10,000.00 cash assistance for workers affected by the pandemic.
A lot of Filipinos are financially struggling now due to the impacts of the COVID-19 pandemic. The pandemic has halted business operations in the Philippines due to the need for the implementation of strict community quarantine measures to fight the spread of the virus.
The economy of the Philippines was dragged down by the pandemic. Several businesses had no choice but to temporarily or permanently close due to losses after losses amid the unstable situation in the country. Many people lost their jobs amid the crisis.
Unfortunately, some of the individuals who lost their jobs are the sole breadwinners of their families. Thus, amid the challenging times, putting food on the table became harder to achieve.
There were several instances when the national and the local governments extended assistance to the people amid the crisis. Some assistance was in the form of cash while others are in goods. There are still pending calls for assistance from the government.
Based on a report on ABS-CBN News, the group 10K Ayuda Na Network is calling for a 10K cash aid for the workers affected by the COVID-19 pandemic. The group held a protest outside the Philippine Senate building in Pasay City.
Furthermore, according to the report, aside from the 10K cash aid for the workers, the group also called for the lifting of the Department of Transportation’s “No Vaccine, No Ride” policy. It is currently implemented in the National Capital Region (NCR).
The “No Vaxx, No Ride” policy is currently in its warning phase. The DOTr has previously released the list of exemptions which include the workers. The stricter implementation of the policy is expected in the coming weeks.
