“Ang mahalagang araw na ito ay nagpapaalala sa atin na sa pamamagitan ng pagkakaisa at pagtutulungan, ating mabibigyang-katuparan ang mga pangarap at mithiin ng manggagawang Pilipino at ng kanyang pamilya,” Laguesma said.

(This important day reminds us that through unity and camaraderie, the dreams and goals of the Filipino worker, as well as his family can be fulfilled.)

He identified these goals: “Sariling bahay at lupa, edukasyon para sa kanilang mga anak, dekalidad na trabaho, abot-kayang bilihin, at payapa at ligtas na pamayanan.”

(Ownership of house, education for their children, quality work, affordable commodities, and a peaceful and safe community.)

“Kaya naman bilang pasasaliga at maasahang katulong sa pagkakaroon ng progreso, marapat lamang na makasama sila at kanilang pamilya na makibahagi at tamasahin ang bunga ng kaunlaran at pagbuti ng kalagayang pang-ekonomiya at ng ating bansa,” he added.

(That is why, as a reliable partner in progress, it is important they and their families must be able to take part and enjoy the fruits of progress and the betterment of our country’s economy.)

“May mensahe rin ito sa ating mga employers at may-ari ng pagawaan na patuloy nilang pagmalasakitan at mahalin ang kanilang mga manggagawa,” said Laguesma.

(This is also a message for our employers and manufacturers to continue to show compassion and love their workers.)

“Kaugnay nito, ang kagawaran ay patuloy na titiyak at magkakaloob ng serbisyo at pagtulong na mabilis, matapat, at kapaki-pakinabang sa mga manggagawa at namumuhunan,” Laguesma added.

(With this, the department will continue to guarantee that it will serve the employer and employee speedily and fairly.)
