Senior citizens are expected to render 4 hours of work, will earn as much as P5,000 a month, they will be assigned in the day shift between 8AM to 5PM  according to the Memorandum of Agreement signed by JFC and Moreno.
“Titingnan natin kung ano 'yung bagay sa kanila, kakayanan nila,” said Joseph Tanbuntiong, JFC country business group head.
(We will see which tasks would suit them, depending on their capabilities.)

“Dapat 'yung nag-eenjoy sila at nakaka-contribute din sila sa tindahan natin,” Tanbuntiong said.
(It must be something that they enjoy doing and also something that contributes to our store operations.)
The city government will prioritize senior citizens who are just walking distance from any JFC food chain store.    

“Mas okay kung 'yung walking distance lang ang bahay [sa store] para hindi na mahirapan,” he said.
(It would be better if they can walk to the store so that they would not have a hard time.)
As per the MOA, each of the 39 stores will hire one deaf or mute person as regular employee. The screening process, which includes medical examinations will start by the end of the month.

“Ang gusto lang namin, everybody should be given equal opportunity... to go back to a normal life for them to feel that they are still part and needed by the society,” Manila Mayor Isko Moreno said
