22K jobs at risk with potential POGO ban

The Philippine Department of Labor and Employment has warned that if online gambling enterprises are prohibited in the nation, about 22,000 Filipinos who work for legal Philippine offshore gaming operators in Metro Manila may lose their jobs.

According to a local media site, Labor Secretary Bienvenido Laguesma stated that all lawfully operating POGO enterprises in the National Capital Region underwent inspections last year. The data gathered during these inspections was utilized to assess the potential impact on the labor market.

Laguesma underlined that closing down legitimate POGO enterprises would be a huge difficulty, affecting the employment of many workers.

He noted that there are other POGO hubs in provinces, particularly in Central Luzon, but these are considered illegal because they are not registered with the Philippine Amusement and Gaming Corporation.

Furthermore, Laguesma stated that assistance would be difficult for those who are not listed with PAGCOR, as opposed to those who are already listed and have a framework in place to reach out. The Department of Labor and Employment has programs in place to assist affected workers if their enterprises are closed.
