The city government of Manila has signed a memorandum of agreement with McDonalds to hire 135 senior citizens and persons with disabilities (PWDs) in its 40 stores in the capital city.

 

McDonald’s Philippines will soon be hiring at least 80 senior citizens and 40 PWDs across the company’s stores in Manila.

For each branch, McDonalds will hire “a minimum of three qualified applicants”, broken down to two senior citizens and 1 PWD each, the Memorandum of Agreement (MOA) reads.

Qualified applicants will undergo a training program approved by the Public Employment Service Office (PESO) of Manila, and the Department of Labor and Employment (DOLE).

Hired senior citizens and PWDs will be assigned to perform tasks complementing those of existing crew members which includes being an order presenter, drink drawer, table manager and overall guest relations.

Under the agreement, senior citizens will be assigned work for not more than four hours per day for five days a week, with shifts set at 8 a.m. to 12 noon and 1 p.m. to 5 p.m.

Meanwhile, PWDs will perform work in shifts also applied to regular crew members, but will not exceed eight hours a day.

“We usher our 38th founding anniversary this September, by inking this partnership with the City of Manila as we commit to provide more employment opportunities which aim to integrate senior citizens and hearing-impaired Manileños into the workforce,” said Kenneth Yang, president and chief executive officer of McDonald’s Philippines.

The partnership will provide senior citizens and PWDs the opportunity to earn and at the same time learn and develop new skills.

“As we welcome our Manileño senior citizens and PWDs, we look forward to grow the alternative workforce and roll it out to more cities,” Yang added.

During the signing of MOA at the Manila City Hall on Wednesday, Manila Mayor Isko Moreno also said the Manila Police District waived the police clearance fee for senior citizens, PWDs.

“We want our PWDs to be a part of society and help our economy. We want to increase their buying capacity. If Americans and Japanese can do it, Filipinos also can,” he said.

“This kind of opportunity is immeasurable. At least hindi na lang sila magzu-zumba at magta-taichi. Now, you belong to society. You are an important part of the community,” Moreno told the senior citizens and PWDs.
