DOLE to launch workers income augmentation program

by T. Villavert

Iloilo City (5 February) -- The Department of Labor and Employment (DOLE) will launch on February 6 the Workers Income Augmentation Program to assist organized and unorganized workers in the formal sector in engaging into business that would provide them additional sources of income and employment for their family members.

Labor and Employment Secretary Arturo Brion said that the program dubbed "Dagdag-Kabuhayan para sa Manggagawa" is part of President Gloria Macapagal-Arroyo's thrusts in poverty alleviation.

Secretary Brion said that the beneficiaries of the program would be assisted to form a project management team which will direct and supervise the daily operation of the business while they are in their respective jobs.

The DOLE press report disclosed that to avail of the program, the unions and organizations where the workers belong must be duly accredited with the DOLE. The DOLE press report further disclosed that the unorganized workers, on the other hand will be assisted through the DOLE accredited co-partners.

Interested workers and labor organizations may contact the nearest DOLE office or the Bureau of Labor Relations for program details. (PIA) [top]
