MC-04 Suspended… But Not Enough!!!

The following Inquirer news and POEA website links cover the “evolution” of POEA Memorandum Circular No. 4 from issuance to OFW protest to amendment—and finally—to suspension:

DoLE Secretary’s Approval Now Required for Direct-hires

OFWs Protest Rule Requiring Employer Bonds

Arroyo Wants Requirements For White Collar OFWs Eased

Migrant Groups Reject New Rules

DoLE Amends Direct-hiring Policies for OFWs

POEA Suspends Memo on Employers $5000 Repatriation Bond

POEA News Release: MC4 Suspended

MC 01 Series 2008: BALDOZ’ Memo suspending MC 04

This is good news indeed to us OFWs. However, I believe that we should not stop here. Let us continue our protest and call for the resignation of ROSALINDA DIMAPILIS-BALDOZ and ARTURO BRION. These two officials should neither be allowed to stay nor transferred to any other government posts. OFWs are not safe while these two are in power! Let us support moves in the Senate and Congress to investigate MC-04 and the people behind it. No to corruption! No to misinformed officials! No to milking-the-cash-cow policies! ROSALINDA DIMAPILIS-BALDOZ and ARTURO BRION RESIGN NOW!!!

    THANK YOU LORD!! At least, it’s suspended for now. Dapat pinag-aralan muna nila yan, bago sila gumawa ng kung anu-anong memo, tsk! tsk! Thank you, God! sobra! Thanks din joe for informing us. God bless you!

    Hi Melanie! Maraming salamat! Ganyan din ang pakiramdam ko nung nalaman ko na suspended na ang MC-04. Parang nabunutan tayo ng tinik sa lalamunan.

    Di ba today yung meeting kuno nila madam pres at ni brion regarding sa MC 4. naku baka buhayin ulit ang issue. sana wag na nilang pakialaman pa talaga. kung ano na yung dati, yun na.

    Samantha, I agree. Sana tuluyan na ibasura ang MC-04. Isama na rin sina Baldoz at Brion.

...sapagkat ang gobyerno natin ay may "cash cow mentality" pagdating sa mga Overseas Filipino Workers.

(Read On "Milking the Cash Cow")

...sapagkat ako ay isa ring OFW; may mithiin, marunong magisip at nagnanais marinig... Makabagong bayani daw... Sa totoo'y tampok na gatasan ng pamahalaan. (English)
