To keep them updated about the labor laws in Macau, Buklod and KADIWA members from the Local Congregation of Taipa, Ecclesiastical District of Macau attended a Labor Law seminar held at their place of worship on May 30, 2021; other brethren attended via live video streaming.
Sister Kit Wong, choir member from the Local Congregation of Macau, Eagle Broadcasting Corporation (EBC) correspondent, a regular speaker at some labor programs of Macau and founder of Yat Tou Employment Company Ltd, served as the guest speaker.
Wong discussed pertinent laws, old and recent, and its latest amendments. Afterwards, a Q&A followed during which she answered the questions of the attendees. Such an activity is helpful to brethren who are migrant workers so that they may know their rights and benefits. They also learned how to properly conduct themselves while working.
“I learned the government rules in instances such as rest days, holidays, and the prohibitions,” said Olivia Ramil, Christian Family Organizations (CFO) officer and district multimedia officer.
Also a CFO officer, and Light of Salvation officer from the Local Congregation of Taipa, Julia Ramirez, said, “This seminar is truly a great help for me, my guide towards a more secure livelihood, and to avoid misunderstandings between me and my employer.”
Abner Vinoya, choir member from the Local Congregation of Taipa, said that it is nice to learn thoroughly his rights as an OFW: “This activity is timely and very important for us. I thank the Executive Minister, Brother Eduardo V. Manalo, for approving activities like this that shows his concern for us OFWs.” — With reports from INC News Section
