The Metro Bacolod Chamber of Commerce and Industry has issued recommendations that the city government can adopt for its proposed tax amnesty ordinance.
Frank Carbon, chief executive officer of MBCCI, said their recommendations will generate the much-needed cash for the city and give reprieve to a much-burdened populace.
Workers ‘hardly feel’ Independence
BY MARCHEL P. ESPINA
For displaced workers, the significance of Independence Day yesterday had escaped their minds amid the coronavirus pandemic, labor leader Wennie Sancho said.
Sancho, secretary-general of the General Alliance of Workers Associations, said the thousands of jobless workers could hardly feel the 122nd celebration, adding that independence is not merely an expression of desire but a means of providing the workers with decent standard of living.
“The despair brought about by large-scale unemployment comes with the threat of destitution that life is unbearable when hunger and poverty are at our heels,” he said.
