Quezon City vice mayoralty bet Winnie Castelo has promised to make things easier for workers in the city by removing the need for them to secure an occupational permit.

Castelo said the occupational permit requirement was another obstacle for people looking for jobs in Quezon City.

To get an occupational permit, a worker would have to present a health permit, a police or NBI clearance, and a community tax certificate.

“Dagdag abala para sa mga aplikante ang pagkuha nito na ipinapatupad ng ating lokal na pamahalaan, kaya’t napapanahon na ito ay alisin na upang makagaan hindi lang sa gastusin kundi pati na rin sa pagod, pamasahe at oras na maaari pa nilang gamitin sa iba pang mga bagay,” he said on Facebook.

By doing away with this permit, more people would be enticed to work in Quezon City, he said.
