#Workers' conditions in the #Philippines remain unchanged even under #PNoy admin 'inclusive growth' platform

PNoy gives lip service to terms like "inclusive growth." But the reality is the middle class and miserable masses have only suffered more under his stewardship. Those lower class people trying to raise themselves out of poverty keep getting hit with the labor contract system (that limits their employment to a single 5 month term.) This pernicious system allows employers to avoid doling out benefits like SSS, Phil Health, Pag-Ibig, etc. This anti labor practice was first implemented by Marcos. By allowing this to continue, PNoy is showing his true oligarchic colors.
