174 Low-Income Workers in Santiago, Ilocos Sur Get Wage from DOLE’s TUPAD


A total of 174 disadvantaged workers in Santiago, Ilocos Sur received their wages of P5,440 each, after rendering 16-day community disinfection and sanitation.

This is through the Tulong Panghanapbuhay Para sa Ating Displaced/ Disadvantaged Workers (TUPAD) Program of the Department of Labor and Employment (DOLE).

The workers received their wages on May 26, 2021, in a payout activity facilitated by DOLE Ilocos Sur Field Office led by Chief Emmanuel Hagad and the office of Ilocos Sur 2nd District Rep. Kristine Singson.

 The beneficiaries are low-income crop growers and farmers.

On behalf of his constituents, Santiago Mayor Josefino Miranda expressed his gratitude to the DOLE. "The COVID-19 pandemic has greatly impacted the livelihood of disadvantaged communities in our town. The TUPAD was a big help as it gave opportunity for our farmers to earn additional income," Mayor Miranda remarked.

 "We are in deep gratitude to the Sen. Joel Villanueva, whose office sponsored this TUPAD fund for my constituents; and to Congw. Singson and DOLE Regional Dir. Atty. Evelyn Ramos, for being the channels of this blessing," he added. END/Justin Paul Marbella and Sherwin Abalos
