Enforcers might get financial aid, says Masbate Rep. Tonton Kho
There is a possibility that barangay tanod and barangay health workers could get aid under the social amelioration program, according to Masbate Rep. Tonton Kho.
In a Facebok post, Kho shared a copy of a memorandum from the Department of Social Welfare and Development saying that they are considered sub minimum wage earners and may be included in the program.
But Kho cautioned that this does not mean they would automatically be included.
As screening would have to be done and the number of beneficiaries would depend on the amount given to the local government.
Still, there is hope that these frontline workers will get much needed assistance!
“Just in! PWEDE NA MAISALI ang mga Tanod and BHW sa SAP. This is For everyone’s guidance. Thank you sa Mabilis na pag aksyon!
Take note guys, nakalagay dito na PWEDE SILA MAISALI, PERO HINDI AUTOMATIC NA KASALI KAGAD.
Please note na depende parin sa availability of funds na downloaded sa LGUs and proper screening,” Kho posted.
