Tom Villarin insists POGOs are not BPOs


Tom Villarin could not believe how far the mental gymnastics of this administration brought them.

The former Akbayan representative found a new reason to hate on Malacañang –– this time over the insistence that POGOs are part of the legitimate outsourcing industry as basis for allowing these Chinese-run offices to reopen.

Villarin said it was a disgrace to legitimate BPOs like call center employees, too.

“POGO is gambling, not business process oursourcing. If Spox Roque & Pagcor’s Domingo claims it as BPO, they might be toying w a pogo stick! You can’t jump around definitions & classifications. POGOs compete w BPOs over space & brings social ills & corrupts, absolutely,” the politiko said.

What a shame!
