by Janinah Jimmin M. Molina

Cagayan de Oro City (17 May) -- Various firms from Cagayan de Oro City participated in the Diskwento Caravan and Livelihood Fair: "Presyong Panalo ang Empleyado," a non-wage benefit program of the Department of Labor and Employment (DOLE), spearheaded by its attached agency, the Regional Tripartite Wages and Productivity Board (RTWBP).

It was a two-day event which commenced on May 13. Different booths of participating firms adorned the provincial capitol grounds.

In response to government call with the initiative of the DOLE, the program have gathered suppliers and requested them to display their products and sell at discounted prices.

"Plataporma sa RTWB mao ang wage fixing og productivity promotion (RTWPB's program covers wage fixing and productivity promotion)," said Estrella Uy-Pahalla, Board Secretary of RTWPB-DOLE Region X.

She clarified that the beneficiaries of program are not the poor but workers who have low salaries.

"This is one of the programs of the government which aims to protect low-paid workers or those who earn at minimum wage," said Pahalla.

She also emphasized that the partner suppliers responded positively and most especially those coming from the business sectors since the program is a tie-up with the government agencies, the private sectors and local government units (LGUs).

"Karong adlawa naa tay kapin baynte (20) ka mga suppliers (We have more than 20 suppliers for today)," she notified.

Some products available at the livelihood fair include cheaper rice from the National Food Authority (NFA), vegetables, pharmaceutical products, canned goods, oil, noodles, and other basic needs.

The Department of Trade and Industry (DTI), Department of Agriculture (DA), National Food Authority (NFA), Department of Health (DOH), Provincial Jobs Assistance Center (PJAC) and LGUs were also organizers of the event in cooperation with the Provincial Office of Misamis Oriental and the business sector.
