The Department of Labor and Employment Regional Office I (DOLE ROI) disbursed the amount of P13,474,200.00 as wages for the low-income marginalized workers in Pangasinan, who were tapped for cash-for-work services under the Tulong Panghanapbuhay Para sa Ating Displaced/Disadvantaged Workers (TUPAD) Program.
In a series of payout activities this September 2021 in various towns in Pangasinan, DOLE has distributed the wages to a total of 3,056 TUPAD workers.
DOLE Eastern Pangasinan Field Office led by Chief Darwin Hombrebueno facilitated the payment for 257 workers in Santa Maria town, with each worker earning P3,400. In Rosales and Umingan, there were 524 workers and 1160 workers, respectively, who each got P5,100. 
DOLE Central Pangasinan Field Office led by Chief Agnes Aguinaldo turned over the wages worth P5,100 each to 130 TUPAD workers in Malasiqui and San Carlos City. Another set of payout ceremony on September 2, 2021 distributed P3,400 each to 706 workers and 279 workers in Malasiqui and Sta. Barbara, respectively.
The workers labored for sanitation and disinfection services in their home barangays. 
In partnership with the local government units, these TUPAD projects aimed to help in alleviating the threats of the COVID-19 in Pangasinan, as cases continue to rise as of late. 
To protect them in their discharge of duties, the TUPAD workers were also given Personal Protective Equipment and micro-insurance.
The program beneficiaries extended their gratitude for their wages, which they shall use to augment their family expenses, especially in these challenging times caused by the pandemic.
DOLE RO1 Regional Director Atty. Evelyn Ramos underscored the unwavering commitment of Labor Secretary Silvestre “Bebot” Bello III to provide immediate help to formal and informal workers.
“Ang inyong tiwala at pananalig sa ating Pangulong Duterte ay sapat na dahilan upang kami ay magpatuloy na maglingkod upang ating mapagtagumpayan ang malaking hamon sa ating bayan,” the Secretary Bello said.
