Navotas hires 1,000 jeepney, trike drivers, vendors
Navotas City said it started hiring 1,000 jeepney and tricycle drivers, ambulant vendors and other workers in the informal sector whose livelihoods are affected by the enhanced community quarantine.
An initial batch of 184 Navoteños are now employed through the Tulong Panghanapbuhay sa Ating Displaced/Disadvantaged Workers Program #Barangay Ko, Bahay Ko Disinfecting/Sanitation Project (TUPAD #BKBK).
Workers of TUPAD #BKBK are assigned to clean and disinfect their respective homes and surroundings.

Meanwhile, the office of Congressman John Rey Tiangco also sought to hire 920 more TUPAD #BKBK workers.
The second batch will begin their emergency employment on April 3 to April 12.
TUPAD #BKBK forms part of the social amelioration program of the Department of Labor and Employment. Beneficiaries will receive P5,370 for 10 days of work.
