Cash-For-Work Plan Implemented


To help relieve the hardship facing residents of the region following the recent massive floods, the national government last weekend released the funds for cash-for-work beneficiaries in the cities of Cagayan de Oro and Iligan.
At least 1,000 beneficiaries, all victims of the recent flash floods caused by tropical “Sendong,” will initially benefit from the cash-for-work program implemented by the Department of Labor and Employment (DOLE).
With most of the residents’ houses completely washed out, the program primarily seeks to satisfy the immediate financial needs of the affected families.

Of the total beneficiaries, 600 are from Cagayan de Oro City and 400 are from Iligan City.
Each of the beneficiaries will receive P215 daily wage, which is 75 percent of the minimum wage rate, with a total earning of P3,225 for each of the beneficiary for the completed duration of work.
The DOLE will pay the salaries and likewise provide the cleaning paraphernalia like rubber boots, “buli” hat, stick brooms, dust pans and dust masks.
For the duration of 15 days, the beneficiaries will clean up drainage canals and other public areas in their own barangays.
In another development, the DOLE 10 announced yesterday the opening of its Western Misamis Oriental (WMO) Provincial Field Office (Metro Cagayan de Oro) effective Thursday, March 1.
The objective of the opening of new DOLE field office is to accommodate and better service the needs of its clients in the region.
Plans to maximize its service in the province were initiated as part of the full implementation of the Ratio-nalization Plan of the Department.
The new office is the fifth Provincial Field Office which covers the municipalities of: Opol, Alubijid, Gitagum, Manticao, Laguindingan, Initao, Libertad and Lugait and the cities of El Salvador and Cagayan de Oro.
“The opening of WMO Provincial Field Office (Metro Cagayan de Oro) is an important step towards realizing our goals in serving the different deliverable programs of the DOLE,” said Provincial Head Dorothy E. Gabe.
She said this is among the many important changes in relation with their vision to respond the employee-employer concerns and strengthen tripartism especially considering that big companies are sprouting in the city and the nearby municipalities.
