Groups raise labor issues amid COVID-19 pandemic

Six months since parts of the country were placed under community quarantine due to the COVID-19 pandemic, labor rights advocates demand jobs creation, adequate aid, and rights protection during a protest in Quezon City on Tuesday. Around 27.3 million Filipino adults are currently unemployed in the middle of the health and economic crises, based on a recent survey released by the Social Weather Station.
