to assist OFWs on their days off

LIBERAL Party standard-bearer Mar Roxas wants Philippine consular offices to work even on weekends so they could assist overseas Filipino workers (OFWs) on their days off.

Roxas said there are many problems concerning OFWs that could be solved only by “common sense.”


One of which is: “Sa iba’t ibang bansa, ang ating mga embahada  at labor attaches, sarado pag weekend kung kelan libre at may oras ang ating mga OFW.”

The administration candidate said this during the last “PiliPinas Debates” when the presidential candidates were asked by OFWs in the Middle East through a video call how they would address the woes of OWFs in different countries.


“Paano sila pupunta at hihingi ng tulong sa ating mga representatives kung sarado ang mga tanggapan? Isa ‘yan sa mga kilos na gagawin natin. Bukas ang ating mga tanggapan para kung kailan nangangailangan ang ating mga OFW, may mapupuntahan sila,” he said.
