Senator Imee Marcos urged the government Thursday (June 11) to hire overseas Filipino workers (OFWs) who lost their jobs due to the COVID-19 pandemic to boost economic recovery.

In a statement, Marcos said the Department of Labor and Employment (DOLE) should come up with an inventory of the skill sets of returning OFWs so they can be assigned to government projects best suited for them.

“We help ourselves by helping our OFWs. They have value-added knowledge and skills plus a solid work ethic that can improve government efficiency and boost development in the countryside where many of them have returned,” she said.

“For decades, OFW remittances have sustained the Bangko Sentral’s currency reserves during many economic crises. This is the best time for the government to prove to our OFWs that its gratitude is sincere,” Marcos added.

The senator said it was possible that the 17.7% unemployment rate recorded in April will increase so the government should be more proactive in creating jobs.
