COVID-19 Crisis: 164 Displaced Seamstresses Hired By Muntinlupa City Government

The hired seamstresses will work to produce face masks primarily for frontliners as well as city residents. TUPAD beneficiaries will render fifteen working days in the program and each will receive a salary of P537 per day.

Muntinlupa Gender and Development Office  head Trina Biazon and Public Employment Service Officer Glenda Aniñon turned-over fabric materials to beneficiaries on Tuesday.

This new development in Muntinlupa resembles that of nearby Las Piñas City wherein a group called KALIPI (Kalipunan ng Liping Pilipina) and its practitioners got involved in the production of face masks. This is also the City Government’s latest move on helping local workers who lost their jobs because of the community quarantine. This past April, close to 1,200 displaced workers were hired.
