There will be more jobs available for senior citizens and persons with disabilities (PWDs) in the city of Manila in the restaurants of KFC and Tokyo Tokyo and Puregold supermarket.
The companies’ branches in Manila agreed to hire the seniors and PWDs who wish to continue working, in line with a program for equal job opportunities in partnership with the capital city of the Philippines.
Manila Mayor Isko Moreno Domagoso of the Manila City Government signed the pact on January 29, 2020, with KFC, Tokyo Tokyo, Puregold.
Puregold announced it will hire 48 senior citizens and PWDs for its 24 stores across the city.
Mayor Isko considers the agreement as a big opportunity for Senior Citizens, PWDs, and Manilenos,
“Inclusive policy—that is our goal. Those who are still capable and those who have less opportunities because of their physical challenges must still be able to join the workforce,” Moreno said in the city announcement of the project.
In 2019, senior citizens who wished to continue working beyond their retirement age were welcomed back to work in at the Polytechnic University of the Philippines in Manila.
Earlier on January 28, the City Government also signed an agreement with Alaska Milk Corporation for the first ever collaborative Wrapper Redemption Project that trades plastics for milk to help provide for the milk needs of the poor families of the city while increasing awareness regarding the proper and responsible disposal of wastes.
