In a press briefing on Thursday, Reps. Raymond Democrito Mendoza (Party-list, TUCP) and Ron Salo (Party-list, KABAYAN) reaffirmed their support for the Security of Tenure proposal which would end contractualization of workers. Both legislators pronounced that they shall refile an amended version of the bill, which will consider the premise of President Rodrigo Duterte in deciding to veto it last month. Salo asked to take into account the employers who invest in the country and will be greatly affected once the measure is enacted. He further advocated for the welfare of Filipino laborers by filing the bill on the creation of the Department of Overseas Filipino Workers. /Caption by Molie Gonzales/ Photos by Pecto Camero/ News and Documentation Section-Press and Public Affairs Bureau/ House of Representatives of the Philippines
