Senator Imee Marcos called on the government to include garbage collectors, street sweepers, and janitors the list of frontliners that will be given financial aid.
The Ilocos Norte politiko said they are just as crucial as medical frontliners.
“Huwag nating kalimutan ang mga basurero, street sweepers at mga janitor na tumutulong para labanan ang COVID-19,” Marcos said.
She said they are also risking their lives amid the coronavirus disease (COVID19) pandemic.
Buwis-buhay din ang kanilang ginagawang trabaho,” Marcos said.
