Labor Secretary Silvestre Bello III assured the returning terminated overseas Filipino workers that the national government will help them to regain jobs even if it will exhaust all means.
“Many governments went ahead of us in easing restrictions. The industries are almost fully operational again by now. They could recall our OFWs anytime,” Bello said in a statement.
He also added that the Philippine government is ready to discuss with foreign governments new policies on migrant workers in terms of the safety and health measures against the viral respiratory disease.
“They might ask more requirements from our OFWs like government certifications to prove they are not a threat to the health and safety of their people. We can do that,” the labor chief further added.
