Senator Ping Lacson is calling on the speedy implementation of financial aid to daily wage earners who are affected by the government’s measure against spread of COVID-19.

“Implementation yan. Ginawa namin isang buong maghapon naipasa namin ang batas. Ngayon papel ng executive, wala kaming pakialam sa implementation,” Senator Lacson said.

He noted that their role now is oversight.

“Ang sa amin, oversight. Ang tatanungin namin yan, nasaan ang mechanism kung paano kayo mag-distribute at gaano kabilis ma-distribute. Kasi ito na-stress ko na ito. Pag daily wage earner siguro ang loan o mauutang niyan stretch natin 2 weeks. After 2 weeks di mamamasada ang driver walang papakain sa pamilya yan. Ang waiter walang trabaho, ang construction worker, walang trabaho, e daily wage yan,” he explained.

“Kapag walang trabaho walang kita yan. So pag naubos ang kanilang kaunting savings at na-exhaust ang pangungutang di natin alam anong pwedeng pumasok… Hindi ako nag-i-instigate o nag-i-incite,” he noted.
