Ralph Recto: Gov’t should ensure Filipino workers benefit from PH-China agreements
Senate President Pro Tempore Ralph Recto said the government should make sure Filipinos should benefit from the partnerships and projects between the Philippines and China.
The Batangas politiko said Filipino workers should be prioritized in the agreements between the two countries.
“Isa pang dapat suriin sa papasuking kasunduan sa China ang usapin sa mga trabahador na gagamitin,” Recto said.
He explained that foreign workers should only be given jobs related to the projects if no Filipinos qualify for the posts.
“Pilipino dapat ang unang mabibigyan ng trabaho sa mga proyektong ito. Mapupunta lang ang trabaho sa foreign workers kung walang Pilipinong kayang gumawa ng ganon,” Recto said.
