CITY OF SAN FERNANDO — A total of 4,026 Tulong Panghanapbuhay sa Ating Disadvantaged/Displaced (TUPAD) Workers who rendered a 10-day work service in their respective communities received ₱4,500 each from the Department of Labor and Employment (DOLE), in coordination with the Provincial Government of Pampanga.
Governor Dennis “Delta” Pineda, together with some provincial and DOLE officials, led the salary pay-out held at the Bren Z. Guiao Convention Center (BZGCC) on Monday, January 16.
“Ito pong programang ito ay naisakatuparan sa tulong ni Pangulong Bongbong Marcos, layon po nito na makapagbigay ng tulong sa ating mga kabalen,” said Governor Pineda.
He also asked the TUPAD workers to be aware of some individuals allegedly claiming to be a part of the program to illegally collect money.
“Lilinawin ko lang po, ito pong perang natanggap ninyo ay inyo lamang. Kung mayroon mang manghihingi ng porsyento sa inyo, huwag na huwag po kayong magbibigay,” said the governor.
TUPAD, as defined by the DOLE, is “a community-based package of assistance that provides emergency employment for displaced, underemployed, and seasonal workers for a period of ten (10) to thirty (30) days.”
