By Felipo David G. Malcampo ZAMBOANGA CITY, August 16 (PIA) – City Mayor Beng Climaco reiterated her warning to jobseekers to avoid looking for jobs in risky areas since there is plenty of employment opportunities in the city. “Please refrain from looking for work in risky areas because we have a lot of job opportunities in Zamboanga,” Mayor Climaco said during a press briefing Monday (August 14). Last month, four Zamboangueño laborers namely Jayson Vailoces, Joel Adanza, Felimon Guerrero, Jr. and Edmundo Ramos were abducted while doing construction and painting jobs in Sulu. Last week, Vailoces, Adanza and Guerrero were rescued by military. On Monday dawn, Ramos was able to escape and was eventually rescued in Basilan. However, Mayor Climaco said that “the most we can do is give a warning”, and that restraining workers from leaving the city “would violate the workers’ rights.” The local government unit through the Public Employment Service Office (PESO) and the Department of Labor and Employment (DOLE) have been holding numerous jobs fairs in Zamboanga City, offering thousands of jobs both locally and abroad.
