Bill to require recruitment agencies to contribute to OFW emergency fund

TO HELP increase and sustain the Emergency Repatriation Fund for overseas Filipino workers (OFWs), a bill seeking to require recruitment agencies or employers to contribute to the fund has been filed in the House of Representatives, a press release yesterday stated.
House Bill No. 6195, authored by Rep. Ma. Theresa Bonoan-David (Manila, 4th district), will require agencies or employers to give $50 to the fund for every worker to be deployed abroad.

“The bill intends to provide the necessary measures for the government to carry out its responsibilities to assist distressed OFWs in cases of war, epidemic, disaster or calamities, natural or man-made, and other similar events, and promote their general welfare,” the lawmaker said.

She added: “There are millions of OFWs all over the world whom the Philippine government is mandated to protect and safeguard under RA 8042 but it seems incapable to efficiently help distressed OFWs due to financial constraints.”

The bill will amend Republic Act 8042 or the Migrant Workers and Overseas Filipinos Act of 1995, which states that the government will repatriate OFWs in times of war, epidemics, disasters, and calamities.

“The [Overseas Workers Welfare Administration], in coordination with [Department of Foreign Affairs], and in appropriate situations, with international agencies, shall undertake the repatriation of workers in cases of war, epidemic, disasters or calamities, natural or man-made, and other similar events without prejudice to reimbursement by the responsible principal or agency within [60] days from notice,” the law states.

HB 6195 will also establish a database and a locator system of OFWs to ease the repatriation process, the press release stated.

Marami talagang oppose dito... nabasa nyo din eto?

eto po yung article:

Press Release
16 June 2012

OFWs say no to ‘$50 additional fee for repatriation fund’ proposal

The overseas Filipino workers group Migrante-Middle East (M-ME) today voiced out its strong opposition on the proposed bill by a Manila Congresswoman imposing an additional fee of $50 that is aimed to sustain the government’s emergency repatriation funds.

Local reports said Representative Ma. Theresa Bonoan-David seeks to amend the Migrant Workers and Overseas Filipinos Act of 2010 or RA 10022 by imposing $50 from every departing OFWs to boost up OWWA Emergency repatriation Fund.

“Rep. Bonoan-David proposal is ill-advised. She may be misinformed because the issue is not about lack of funds. The OFWs trust funds held in trust to OWWA is now about P13-B and is earning, and yet the OWWA does not have enough programs and welfare services to OFWs and their dependents including the proper use of its Emergency Repatriation fund,” said John Leonard Monterona, Migrante-Middle East regional coordinator.

“The OWWA has not been transparent on the real status of the OFWs trust fund and where it is being spent,” Monterona averred.

Monterona continued that such proposal is clearly an anti-OFW. “For one, it is just an added burden to already overburdened OFWs. The proposal is also against the mandate of the Migrant Workers Act of 2010 or RA10022."

“Instead of imposing additional fees or charges upon our heavy shoulders, considering the huge contribution of OFWs in terms of yearly remittances posting to $1.7-B on April 3 to 4 percentage point higher than the same month of last year, Rep. Bonoan-David must give up and volunteer to channel her millions of pork barrel allocation to OWWA’s emergency repatriation fund,” Monterona challenging Rep. Bonoan-David.

He added that pro-OFW lawmakers should do the same.

Monterona said upon learning about such proposal, they have consulted their officers and came up with a position to oppose it and will strongly campaign against its passage in Congress.

“We through our Migrante International leaders in Manila might seek a dialog with Rep. Bonoan-David to hear our side and position. If she will insist, then we have no choice but to intensify our campaign against her proposal and we might campaign not to vote her in the 2013 Congressional election as she will vie for reelection,” Monterona added.

Monterona said that his group has been very vocal to the Aquino government about imposing unjustified and unnecessary fees and charges as an added burden on the already overburdened OFWs.

“In fact, this is one of the many challenges that we put forward to the Aquino administration –to stop imposing additional fees and charges. We hope that Vice-President Jejomar Binay, also presidential adviser on OFWs concern, is on our side as we have heard him several times issuing statements against additional unnecessary fees and charges overburdening our OFWs,” Monterona added.

“We advise Rep. Bonoan-David to drop her anti-OFW proposal of imposing $50 to every OFWs. We are not milking cows. We will campaign against her anti-OFW bill,” Monterona ended. # # #

According to POEA, there are 4,500 OFW leaving the country every day. If we try to evaluate this this translates that the government could collect $225,000 a day or $82,125,000 in a year... Dba malaki?

Bakit di nalang kunin sa pondo ng Pork Barrel yung kulang nilang pondo?

isang malaking pasakit yang bagong batas na yan. mahirap na nga mag apply, magtrabaho at malayo sa pamilya mo, dadagdagan pa ng mga batas na nagpapahirap pa lalo sa sitwasyon ng mga OFWs gaya nyan.
