Gov Marcos urges youth leaders to address ‘real’ issues

Aug 7, 2018 @ 14:46

Ilocos Norte Governor Imee Marcos on July 24 called on the Sangguniang Kabataan (SK) to address the youth’s problems.

The Ilocos Norte politiko made the remark during her visit at the Nueva Ecija University of Science and Technology – Sumacab Campus in Cabanatuan City.

“The Sangguniang Kabataan should address real issues of the youth. Ang mga kabataan ay hindi lamang kinabukasan ng ating bayan, bagkus sila ang pag-asa natin ngayon,” Marcos said.

“Ang suliranin na kinahaharap ngayon ng mga kabataan ay tunay na sila rin ang makasasagot. Kabataan para sa kabataan,” she said.

She said the youth face issues of jobs mismatch, social media addiction, and mental health.

“Marami tayong mabibigay na trabaho sa ating mga graduates lalo na sa construction at transportation. Kaya lamang, ang mga graduates natin ay mga nurse at mga teacher. Hindi sila angkop sa mga bakanteng posisyon, kaya tayo nagkakaroon ng job mismatching,” Marcos explained.

“Ngayon na marami na tayong turista, dadami na rin ang mga trabaho katulad ng equipment operator, welder, sa food industry, at iba pang trabaho na kabilang sa tourism trade,” she added.
