Anakalusugan Rep. Mike Defensor will not terminate the employment of some 9,000 casual and contractual employees of Quezon City government if he becomes the next mayor of the city.

In a talk with residents of Barangay Payatas, Defensor also underscored the need to help those who lost their jobs and livelihood amid the COVID-19 pandemic.

“Alam nyo ho sa city hall ang contractual at casual employees ay 9,000. Ngayon ho nag-usap kami ni Winnie (Castelo) walang tatanggalin. Kahit yang politika na yan, itabi natin yan,” said Defensor.

Defensor is running for Quezon City mayor with Councilor Castelo as his running mate.

“Pagkatapos ng Mayo lahat ng nandyan, walang dapat tanggalin,” Defensor stressed.

Defensor also promised to find ways to increase the available job opportunities for the residents of the city.
