Theme of Labor Day commemoration is “Manggagawa Naman,” meaning for workers issues to be a priority in the national agenda.
In particular this translates to a critique of President Aquino’s inaction on workers demands for regular jobs, wage hike and labor rights. Workers will also challenge candidates running in the elections to respond to workers demands.
