When you go over your newspaper today, you will find this VERY DEPRESSING revelation:
“As of October 2011, there are 5.49 million working children aged five to 17. More than 55.1 percent or 3.02 million were counted as child labor while 2.99 million are exposed to hazardous form of child labor,” according to Labor Secretary Rosalinda Baldoz.
Adding insult to injury, YOU WON’T FIND any specific measure being done by the Aquino Administration to combat this, either when they assumed power or until last year.
As in NOTHING. Two of the websites you can check out are those of the Phil. Star and the Inquirer.
Baldoz said anti-child labor programs have been implemented since 1995 and “we have never stopped doing so.”
But she DID NOT CITE EVEN ONE PROGRAM, location or beneficiary (ies) of whatever has been done, if any, by the Aquino Government in the two years of its reign.
Baldoz said the Aquino Administration has started with an initial 80 poor barangays where “we intend to have zero child labor by the end of the year” But she did not name even one barangay and its location, not one detail whatsoever of what was supposedly started.
At kung hindi ba naman panibagong PAGYAYABANG na naman ito, mga kababayan:
Baldoz said the Aquino Government’s goal is to reduce child labor in the country by 75 percent in four years.
Let’s do a little math, boys and girls.
Four years is 1,408 days. With 3.02 million child laborers, 75 percent of that would be roughly 2,250,000.
If you divide 2,250,000 by 1,408, the result is more than 1,500. That means they will have to free MORE THAN 1,500 KIDS DAILY from child labor to achieve their goal.
And yet, Baldoz said they only have an initial 80 barangays, out of the MORE THAN 42,000 NATIONWIDE, to begin with. Two years into the Pnoy presidency and just 80 barangays.
For the sake of the child laborers, I sure hope Baldoz can pull off a miracle.
But one thing I’ll tell you, guys, A COMPREHENSIVE AUDIT of Labor department funds on
child labor eradication is in order.
As soon as possible, and I mean every letter of it.

Basahin n’yo ito! At sabihin nyo ngayon kung sino maka-mahirap! Dapat kang suportahan, Kuya Boyet! Isa kang tunay na mandirigma ng rule of law! Mabuhay ka!
The oligarchs are never going to be pro-poor! Oligarchs are always pro-control.

Kukurakutin lang ang interest niyan o kung hindi, papalitan ng peso ang dollar na yan para maitago na ang $1 billion.
Ang mahirap rin.. di mo aasahan si Abnoy and cohorts. Busy sila paggawa ng pera, walang panahon sa bayan.

May mayabang.. Madaldal.. INUTIL ..Retarded.. Up to when are we to tolerate the destruction of our democracy? This is bypassing checks and balances and turning them into SUPREME EXECUTIVE POWER!
OK LANG TUMULONG, KASUMPA-SUMPA ANG MAGYABANG!
Iba-iba talaga tayo ng reaction tungkol sa napabalitang pagpapahiram ng $1 bilyon ng ating gobyerno sa IMF o International Monetary Fund. Kung magpahiram tayo ng pera sa IMF, may masama ba doon? Siguro naman meron ding mga kasunduan yan na hindi naman tayo madedehado,
ng pagpahiram nila sa
atin mula pa noong 1962. At meron naman tayong kikitain sa perang ipapahiram
natin sa kanila. So, para sa akin, wala akong nakikitang masama. Kasi, sigurado
namang kikita yan agad at may maipambayad pa sa iba nating utang sa ibang bansa
. Kaysa naman ipapagawa ng mga kalsada o ano pa man, na walang balik sa atin na
pera. At kung ipapahiram natin yan sa ating mga lokal na mga negosyante, baka
hindi pa mabayaran yan. Di sigurado lugi ang ating gobyerno. Samantalang kung
sa IMF, siguradong kikita na tayo. Sa mga kumukontra, gaya bigyan n’yo naman ng pagkakataon na
magawa ng administrasyong Aquino ang kanilang mga dapat gawin, hindi basta agad
tayo kukontra. Salamat po. sana
PNoy, wala ka na bang matinontg pag-iisip? Tingnan mo ang kakulangan ng classrooms, ng mga gamit, mga sira-sirang kalsada. Ang palagiang brownout, ang malawakang deforestations, ang pagkasira ng natural resources sa mining industry. Umaksiyon ka naman. Puro ka dada. Kayong mga advisers, huwag ayon ng ayon sa presidenteng walang nagagawa.
WHAT’S SCARY ABOUT THE $1-B LOAN TO IMF IS …
Sobra kasing yabang nitong si Penoy.
Boyet, you are right. And to think that most of the dollars we have come from OFW remittances.
That’s so bloody sad.
