Gov’t offers 30,000 infra jobs to Hanjin workers

 

They had a lot to choose from.

The economic team of President Rodrigo Duterte wanted to make sure that the 2,779 workers of the bankrupt Hanjin Heavy Industries and Construction Corp. in Subic, Zambales won’t be jobless for long.

The Build, Build, Build team went to stage a one-day job fair specifically for these skilled shipbuilders on Saturday, Feb. 9 at the Subic Bay Gymnasium.

Over 100 contractors went to offer nearly 30,000 jobs for them to consider, with vacancies like carpenters, pipe fitter, steel man, welder, scaffolder, electrician, painters, and laborers.

“We hope that the Jobs Caravan provides a fresh start to the displaced workers of a shipyard operator. These skilled workers will help ensure the success of the government’s infrastructure program,” said Bases Conversion and Development Authority (BCDA) President and CEO Vivencio Dizon.

While the bailout of Hanjin remains a pending issue, their employees won’t have to wait that long.
