Sen. Bam: Trabaho Center Bill to help ease burden of finding employment

The Trabaho Center Bill filed by re-electionist Sen. Bam Aquino will help ease the burden and struggles of looking for employment once it is enacted into law.


“Pagkatapos ng ilang taong pag-aaral, panibagong kalbaryo naman ang susuungin ng ating mga estudyante para makahanap ng trabaho at makatulong sa kanilang pamilya,” said Sen. Bam.


“Sa tulong ng Trabaho Center Bill, masosolusyunan na ang mahirap, matagal at magastos na proseso ng paghahanap ng trabaho,” said Sen. Bam, author of Senate Bill No. 1278 or the Trabaho Center Bill.


According to Sen. Bam, the bill aims to solve the prevalent problem of jobs mismatch and high unemployment rate in the country.
The measure seeks to establish Trabaho Centers or job placement offices in public high schools and state universities and colleges (SUCs).


The Trabaho Center will provide services such as Industry matching, career counseling, and employment facilitation.
“Sa tulong ng Trabaho Centers, pagtatagpuin ang mga kompanya na naghahanap ng trabaho at mga estudyanteng naghahanap ng trabaho,” said Sen. Bam.


To ensure employability of students upon graduation, the Trabaho Center will gather feedback from employers to better develop the school’s curriculum and training programs.


The senator described the Trabaho Center Bill as the next step to ensure employment for all graduates who benefitted from the Free College Law, which he pushed as principal sponsor.


“Itodo na natin ang tulong sa mga estudyanteng nakinabang sa libreng kolehiyo sa pamamagitan ng pagtiyak na mayroon silang magandang trabaho pagtanggap nila ng diploma,” said Sen. Bam.

Sen. Bam vows to work for passage of Trabaho Center Bill to help ensure jobs for graduates

Re-electionist Sen. Bam Aquino has committed to pursue the passage of a measure that will help ensure job availability for K-12 and college students once they receive their diploma.


“Kasunod ng pagsusulong natin ng batas sa libreng kolehiyo, nais naman nating tiyakin na may siguradong trabaho ang mga graduate sa tulong ng Trabaho Centers,” said Sen. Bam, the principal sponsor of the Free College Law.


“Nakapaghain na tayo ng batas na maglalagay ng Trabaho Centers sa ating mga pampublikong paaralan. Mahalaga lang na masigurong maisasabatas ito sa susunod na Kongreso,” added Sen. Bam.


In the 17th Congress, Sen. Bam filed Senate Bill No. 1278 or Trabaho Center Bill, which seeks to establish job placement offices in public high schools and state universities and colleges (SUCs).


The measure mandates the establishment of a Trabaho Center in every public high school and SUC with main services that include: 1) Industry Matching, 2) Career Counseling, and 3) Employment Facilitation.


The legislation aims to address the skills mismatch and ensure employability of students upon graduation by using feedback from employers to better develop the school’s curriculum and training programs.
“Sa tulong ng Trabaho Centers, pagtatagpuin ang mga kompanya na naghahanap ng trabaho at mga estudyanteng naghahanap ng trabaho,” said Sen. Bam.


The senator believes that the passage of the Trabaho Center Bill is the next step to ensure employment for all graduates who benefitted from the Free College Law.


“Ang bawat Pilipinong nakinabang sa libreng kolehiyo ay dapat may siguradong trabaho. Iyan ang sisigiruhin natin kung papalarin tayo ng isa pang termino,” said Sen. Bam.

Sen. Bam: Address jobs mismatch to help solve unemployment

Re-electionist Sen. Bam Aquino reiterated the need to connect workers to the available jobs in the market to help address the unemployment problem in the country.

“Kailangang pagtagpuin ang mga kumpanyang naghahanap ng empleyado at ang mga taong naghahanap ng trabaho,” said Sen. Bam, adding that he will push for the passage of the Trabaho Center Bill if he wins a second term in the Senate.

“Kaya pagkatapos ng Libreng Kolehiyo, isusunod natin isusulong ay ang batas para sa siguradong trabaho sa pamamagitan ng Trabaho Centers,” added Sen. Bam.

Sen. Bam said the Trabaho Center Bill is the necessary best reform after the Free College Law, which he pushed as principal sponsor, to ensure employment for all graduates.

“Ang bawat Pilipinong nakinabang sa libreng kolehiyo ay dapat may siguradong trabaho. Iyan ang sisigiruhin natin kung papalarin tayo ng isa pang termino,” said Sen. Bam.

The measure seeks to establish Trabaho Centers or Job Placement Offices (JPOs) in public high schools and state universities and colleges (SUCs) to address the skills mismatch and ensure employability of students upon graduation.

“Aayusin nito ang ugnayan ng mga kumpanya at industriya sa mga eskwelahan para tiyaking angkop sa pangangailangan ng employers ang edukasyon at training na ibinibigay ng mga academic institution,” said Sen. Bam.

Through the Trabaho Centers, Sen. Bam said college and K-12 students will be employment-ready by the time they receive their diploma.

Focus on creating jobs for Filipinos, not for illegal aliens — Sen. Bam

Sen. Bam Aquino called on the administration to focus on generating jobs for Filipinos, and not for the Chinese, amid the reported influx of workers from China in the country.

“Gamitin sana ni Pangulong Duterte ang pagkasiga niya sa paggawa ng mga trabaho para sa mga Pilipino at mga nasa Pilipinas at hindi para sa mga dayuhan,” said Sen. Bam, who is seeking re-election under the Otso Diretso banner.

According to Sen. Bam, the government should prioritize the employment of Filipinos so they don’t have to seek greener pastures abroad for their livelihood.

“Ang daming Pilipino ang nagtatrabaho sa ibang bansa. Ang panaginip ng kanilang pamilya ay dito na sana sa Pilipinas makapagtrabaho ang kanilang mga mahal sa buhay,” said Sen. Bam.

The senator said it would be painful for overseas Filipino workers (OFWs), who have to leave their families in the Philippines to work abroad, to find out that many legal and illegal Chinese workers are making a living in the country.

“Masakit na mawalay sa pamilya ngunit wala silang magawa dahil walang mahanap na trabaho sa Pilipinas. Subalit mas masakit malaman na dayuhang Tsino pala ang nakikinabang sa mga trabaho rito sa Pilipinas na dapat ay para sa kanila,” said Sen. Bam.

While it is allowable for Chinese workers to work in the country, Sen. Bam said the government should first prioritize the employment of Filipinos before allowing foreign workers to seek employment here.

Earlier, Sen. Bam has committed to bridge the gap between education and employment through the Job Matching Bill, which will address the issues of jobs mismatch and unemployment.

After free college, Sen. Bam focuses on solving unemployment, jobs mismatch

After pushing for the enactment of the Free College Law, Sen. Bam Aquino said he’s focused on addressing unemployment and jobs mismatch through the Trabaho Sigurado Bill.

“Pushing for the Job Mismatch Bill or addressing the job mismatch is the necessary best reform after the free college law,” Sen. Bam, principal sponsor of the free college law, said during the Rappler senatorial candidates’ forum held at the Ateneo de Manila University on Monday.

According to Sen. Bam, one out of five Filipinos are working in jobs that are not suitable to their courses.

“Iyong unang batas na ipa-file natin kung makabalik sa Senado ay ang Trabaho Sigurado Bill para ilapit ang mga estudyante sa mga trabaho na nababagay sa mga kurso nila,” pointed out Sen. Bam, who is seeking re-election under the Otso Diretso slate.

“Kailangan ay nagma-match iyong mga kurso at subjects sa mga pangangailangan sa lugar na kinalalagyan ng paaralan, guro, at estudyante,” he added.

In the 17th Congress, Sen. Bam filed Senate Bill No. 1278 or Trabaho Centers in Schools Act, which seeks to establish job placement offices in public high schools and state universities and colleges (SUCs).

The measure mandates the establishment of a Trabaho Center in every public high school and SUC with main services that include: 1) Industry Matching, 2) Career Counseling, and 3) Employment Facilitation.

The legislation aims to address the skills mismatch and ensure employability of students upon graduation by using feedback from employers to better develop the school’s curriculum and training programs.
