Para may extra baon: Erap offers summer jobs to 1,000 students
Manila Mayor Joseph “Erap” Estrada aims to make the summer vacation of students worthwhile and memorable.
Through the Special Program for Employment of Students 2018, the city is hiring 1,000 college and high-school students for 20-day summer jobs starting May 2.
This project allows students, ages 14 to 24, to work in different city departments.
They will receive salaries wherein 50 percent will come from the Department of Labor and Employment and the other half from the Manila City Hall.
“What I want you to understand while working is the value of unity,” Estrada told the students during the orientation for the program.
“Make this as your guide and inspiration for your future plans in life,” he added.
