Actor Robin Padilla has thrown his support for the franchise renewal of ABS-CBN network but took the cudgels for workers suffering from alleged unfair labor practices in the entertainment industry.

Padilla urged celebrities to help defend the rights of workers in their sector before defending the owners of these giant media firms.

“I am not against abscbn franchise but we have to be real this is the only chance na kayo ang maging daan para mabago ang takbo ng working state nating lahat sa entertainment industry magpagamit muna kayo sa mahihirap sa mga taong nagdala sa inyo sa kasikatan bago sa mga mayayaman,” he said in a Facebook post.

“I am for abscbn renewal pero include the agreement of Chairwoman Liza DIño and Secretary Silvestre Bello in there mission and vision una muna tayong magserbisyo sa mga tao natin sa loob natin! sa bakuran natin! bago tayo mangapitbahay,” he said.

Padilla also challenged movie and television stars from both ABS-CBN and GMA to present their contracts and compare their salaries to the ordinary workers.

“Gusto niyo pala itama ang mali abay umpisahan natin sa una pag usapan muna natin ang tamang sueldo benepisyo at tamang oras ng trabaho ng mga kasama natin sa taping at shooting bago niyo ipaglaban ang karapatan ng kumpanya unahin niyo yun tao ng kumpanya na kasama niyo sa bawat araw sa location at wag niyo proteksyonan lang ang regular employees paano yun mga hindi regular?” he said.

He said he was ready to present his contract to the public for comparison with other celebrities and film and tv crew members.

“Anytime ako anywhere ilabas natin mga contract natin let us compare our salaries to our kapamilya co workers at isama niyo na mga kapuso at mga kapatid. Magpalabasan na tayo para makita ng publiko let us give it to them tutal napakadrama ninyo gawin na nating teleserye punuin natin ng revelations ang isyu na ito na dapat pinag uusapan sa korte at congress. Hindi lahat sa mundo ay Showbiz at Politics one way or the other the revolution of the people has to be realized!” he said.
