Pangasinan 4th District Representative Christopher de Venecia said the government must also remember to give assistance to freelancers and members of the gig economy.

The Pangasinan politiko said the coronavirus disease (COVID19) has shed light on the plight of the country’s freelancers.

“Layunin natin na matulungan ang kanilang sektor dahil isa sila sa hindi nabibigyan ng pansin sa nangyayaring COVID-19 pandemic,” De Venecia said.

“Dahil sa COVID-19 ay na-highlight ang hindi magandang estado ng ating mga freelancers. Marami ang nawalang ng hanap-buhay, at hindi naman din sila nakasama sa nabibigyan ng karagdagang tulong,” he added.

De Venecia called on government agencies to extend assistance to freelancers since they are being neglected.

“Hangarin natin na matulungan ang mga miyembro nitong sektor na makabangon,” he said.
