Legarda: Welfare of OFWs a top priority
MANILA, Philippines–Promoting the rights and welfare of overseas Filipino workers (OFWs) and seafarers will continue to top Sen. Loren Legarda’s Senate legislative agenda even as the Senator reminded them that they are adequately protected under various laws and treaties passed by Congress.
”Patuloy kong ipaglalaban ang karapatan ng ating mga OFWs sa loob at labas ng Senado. Sa katunayan may mga batas at international treaty na akong itinulak para sa kapakanan nilang naghahanapbunay sa ibang bansa (I will continue to fight for the rights of OFWs inside and outside of the Senate. The truth is I have already pushed for laws and international treaty for the benefit of those working overseas) ,” Legarda said in a statement issued to media.
