Janette Garin likes Bong Go’s balik probinsya pitch
This politiko is excited to welcome Ilonggos back home. Are you?
Iloilo Rep. Janette Garin shared how happy she is about the Balik Probinsya, Bagong Pagasa program signed by President Rodrigo Duterte last week, which encourages people to leave the highly congested Metro Manila and return home. The catch is providing good jobs there.
“We are more than happy to welcome back our District 1 constituents who needed to leave to seek greener pastures. Alam natin na may mga sitwasyon talaga sa buhay na magtutulak sa ating magtrabaho sa labas ng ating kinalakhang lugar at lumayo sa pamilya,” the politiko and ex-Health secretary said.
This may be bad policy to start during the COVID-19 crisis, but it’s nice to have this option.
