Reskilling and Upskilling Critical Under the New Normal -- Angara
With businesses struggling to keep their heads above water due to the COVID-19 pandemic and with more people losing their jobs as a result, Senator Sonny Angara said today that the reskilling and upskilling of workers is now more important than ever.
“Unemployment hit a high of 17.7 percent in April this year. That’s over 7.3 million Filipinos who need jobs. During this pandemic, many businesses have to cut costs or start exploring new ways of making money. We cannot operate on a business as usual basis anymore,” Angara said.
