MANILA – Four restaurants under Jollibee Foods Corp said Friday it committed to hire the elderly and persons with disabilities in the city of Manila, a first in the 4-decade history of the Philippines’ largest fast food operator.

Jollibee, Chowking, Mang Inasal and Greenwich are looking to hire 78 senior citizens and 39 mute and deaf Manileños for its 39 branches in the capital city, said Fernan Bermejo, officer in charge of the city’s Public Employment Sevice Office (PESO).

The elderly will be asked to do “light tasks” like helping customers follow-up orders and serve as ushers, Bermejo told ABS-CBN News.

Hired senior citizens can earn as much as P5,000 a month, and will only work for a maximum of 4 hours a day, according to the Memorandum of Agreement signed by JFC and Manila Mayor Isko Moreno.

The city government will prioritize hiring senior citizens living near JFC fast food chains, Bermejo said.

“Mas okay kung yung walking distance lang ang bahay [sa store] para hindi na mahirapan,” he said.

Each of the 39 stores will hire one deaf or mute person as a regular employee, Bermejo said. The screening process, which includes medical examinations, is expected to start next week.

The agreement was signed weeks after Moreno appealed to fast food chains in the capital to give Manila’s senior citizens and PWDs a chance to contribute to society.

“Give them a chance, an opportunity to earn hanggat kaya pa nila,” he said.
