AKO BICOL Rep. Alfredo Garbin was back in action today as he attended the budget hearing for the Department of Labor and Employment, also attended by DOLE Sec. Silvestre Bello III himself. Rep. Garbin wanted to bring back the Government Internship Program which seeks to involve our out-of-school youth in government and offer their skills and abilities to the bureaucracy.
“What is the rationale for the removal of our government interns?”, asked Rep. Garbin, “is there any better alternative for our government to involve our underprivileged youth in the government service?”
Rep. Garbin wants to maintain the allocations at the same level as last year’s to enable government offices to hire the underprivileged.
