House Speaker Lord Allan Velasco on Sunday, May 1, issued a statement commemorating employees and workers on Labor Day.
"On this Labor Day, we honor and salute all Filipino workers who work tirelessly so they could put food on the table and improve their quality of life for themselves and their families," Velasco said in a May 1 statement.
Particularly, he emphasized low-wage earners, medical frontliners, and essential workers.
“We extend a special recognition of the low-wage earner who gets by, as well as our medical frontliners and other essential workers who we now realize impact our lives significantly during this pandemic,” Velasco said.
“This occasion also reminds each one of us the importance of working hard in life, and that without hard work, nothing can be achieved,” he concluded.
