There are nearly 178,000 vacancies in the government bureaucracy that should be filled to address the country’s unemployment and underemployment problems.

Anakalusugan Partylist Rep. Mike Defensor said government agencies with vacancies should start making permanent positions for skilled workers so they can help solve the unemployment problem to alleviate.

“The state is the largest employer in the country. It can alleviate the unemployment problem by hiring staff to fill vacancies that are budgeted for, “he said.

Defensor said funding the Plantilla positions was not an issue as that Budget 2022 will cover this financial problem.

Based on the budget documents for 2022 presented to Congress, Defensor said the bureaucracy has perpetual positions of 1,899,747, from the president, who is in grade 33 (P 415,728 per month) , right down to the lowest paid worker, who receives 12,034 P (salary level 1) in the basic salary.

According to Defensor, 1,721,753 positions are already filled in various government offices. On the other hand, 177,994 vacancies remain unfilled.

He noted that the number of vacancies still does not include local governments across the country.

Defensor noted that Congress had funds for salaries in the annual budget on the basis of existing, including vacant, permanent positions.

“This means that the agencies have the means to recruit staff to fill vacant positions,” he emphasized.

He complained that many government agencies choose not to hire additional staff in order to save money, which they then use for other purposes with the approval of the Department of Budget and Management (DBM) and Malacañang.

“We should put an end to this practice, by forcing agencies to hire the staff they need. Salaries should be used for salaries, ”he said.

When filling vacant positions, Defensor urged government agencies to give priority to so-called work contract (COS) and order processing (JO) workers who could qualify for the vacant positions.

“These contract agents have already taken over the work of those who are supposed to fill the vacancies. They are not hired permanently, perhaps because they lack certain requirements such as the authorization for the public service, “he said.

Defensor supported the plea of ​​these employees for an end-of-year allowance of at least 10,000 pesos.

” President Duterte can grant your request. The DBM can raise the funds it needs from savings, ”he said.
