It’s not a matter of worker shortage, but of liberty.

Former Senator JV Ejercito joined the calls made by groups of healthcare workers who want to head abroad and work there amid a standing ban on new deployment of medical professionals, especially nurses.

“Health workers should be allowed to work abroad if they wish to,” the politiko said, notwithstanding the local COVID-19 outbreak.

“We cannot deprive people to seek greener pastures and better opportunity. They only want to improve their quality of life and their families,” he added.
