MANILA - Lipa City Rep. Vilma Santos-Recto on Wednesday said she has no problem with the proposed "no work, no pay" bill for lawmakers.

The veteran actress-turned-politician said that those who do not work definitely do not deserve to be paid.

"Well to be honest kasi, napanood ko rin sa news 'yan kahapon. I think 'yan ang isang tinatackle nila sa lower House but siguro naman ngayon, pagsubok ng kasipagan. If you will not work, then definitely you don't deserve to be paid," Santos-Recto said.

"I'm not worried kung ipatupad nila 'yun. Kung hindi mo trabahuhin, di mo rin deserve bayaran. I guess magsipag dahil lalo na sa kaso namin, pinagkatiwalaan kami. Dapat lang namin ibalik yun," she added.
