Friday, April 27, 2012
CITY OF SAN FERNANDO -- The Department of Labor and Employment (Dole) in Pampanga reiterated Friday its full support to the programs of the Provincial Government.
Maria Rima Hernandez, officer-in-charge of Dole-Pampanga office, said that aside from the P1.5 million previously given by the department for summer employment opportunities of students, there will be another P500,000 allocated for the same purpose.
“Yung 60 percent na dapat sana ay counterpart ng kapitolyo ay manggaling na sa Tesda (Technical Education and Skills Development Authority) kaya walang na pong gastos dito ang probinsiya,” Hernandez said.
It can be recalled that the first P1.5 million benefited at least 527 working students who were tapped by Pampanga Public Employment Services Office under the Special Program for Employment of Students.
These students were deployed all over the province to conduct a house to house census of skilled workers.
This is in support to the “Skills Registry System,” which the Provincial Government would like to implement in order to provide job opportunities for Kapampangans.
For the additional P500,000, Governor Lilia Pineda plans to assist cultural minority students.
