Statement of Sen. Joel Villanueva on Labor Day

Today, we give honor to all hardworking Filipino workers around the world. We thank you not only for your passion to provide for your family but also for helping the country foster a robust economy.

Rest assured, the Senate Committee on Labor, Employment and Human Resources Development will continue to push for the passage of Senate Bill No. 1116 or the End of 'Endo' Act which will prohibit labor-only contractualization and provide social benefits and protection for every Filipino worker.

In addition, we will continue to push for policies that will enhance the welfare of our workers including the increase in opportunity for work flexibility, creation of unemployment insurance and policies that will improve job security and safety at work.

Together, let us stand to end all forms of labor abuse and empower the working men and women of the country.

Maligayang Araw ng Paggawa at mabuhay po ang bawat manggagawang Pilipino!
