Biglang bonus! General Luna Mayor Matt Florido gives P5,000 bonus to grass cutter
General Luna Mayor Matt Florido only chanced upon a grass cutter when he visited the town’s nursery and newly constructed isolation center, but he was so moved by her hard work that he gave her a bonus on the spot.
In a Facebook post, Florido said he approached the grass cutter, Rosalie Abcede, upon seeing her and learned that she was the caretaker of the nursery.
She took over the same job from her father after he passed away.
After asking how she was doing, the mayor reached into his pocket and gave her P5,000 from his salary.
She was reluctant to accept the money, but he was insistent, telling her it was his gift to her for the difficult job she was doing.
He also told her to continue to work hard, and said he might make her a permanent employee.
He moved away after this exchange as both of them were getting emotional, he said.
But Florido said he was glad he did it as he salutes Rosalie’s hard work.
She deserves it!
“SI ROSALIE AT ANG GRASSCUTTER
Kaninang umaga ay nagtungo ako sa ating nursery dahil may turn over kami ng livelihood project. Binisita ko na din ang bagong gawang Isolation Center natin.
Nakatawag pansin sa akin nang makita ko ang isang babae na nagga-grasscutter. Nilapitan ko siya. Siya pala si Rosalie Abcede, ang caretaker ng ating nursery. Nang namatay ang kanyang tatay na dati nating caretaker ay siya ang pumalit.
Kinumusta ko siya saglit at pagkatapos ay inabutan ko siya ng Php 5,000.00, nagkataon kase na kakasweldo ko lang kahapon. ‘Mayor, nakakahiya naman po, huwag na po’, sabi niya at ayaw niya tanggapin. Ang isinagot ko na lang sa kanya ay ‘Bigay ko yan sa iyo, napakahirap ng iyong trabaho. Ibili mo yan ng pangangailangan ng mga anak mo. Sipagan mo pa at hindi malayong ipermanente ko ikaw sa munisipyo.’
Lumayo na ako sa kanya, dahil parehas nang tutulo ang aming luha…
Pagsaludo sa iyo Rosalie! Isang kang simbolo ng matatag na babae! Isa kang tunay na huwaran.
