Sec. Locsin sharing 75% of monthly pay with ‘no work, no pay’ DFA workers

In another selfless act of a Duterte cabinet member, Department of Foreign Affairs (DFA) Secretary Teddy Boy Locsin Jr. has pledges 75 percent of his monthly salary to “no work no pay” employees of the Department of Foreign Affairs (DFA).

He made the announcement two days after Cabinet Secretary Karlo Nograles announced that majority of the Duterte cabinet members committed to voluntarily donate a chunk of their salaries to augment funds for the fight of the government against COVID-19.

“I’m raising to 75% my salary cut to go directly and only to @DFAPHL no work/no pay workers,” the foreign affairs chief said.

“I need to know it is going ONLY to the right people. I don’t want to learn it’s gone to idiots. That will give me a stroke from rage and I won’t be able to wield a sledgehammer,” he added.

The foreign affair’s chief in an earlier tweet has described the DFA’s “no work, no pay” employees as the “backbone (and) flesh of our basic services.”

The DFA Sec. initially pledged 30 percent of his salary to be given to these workers.

“Like Singapore paycut, I am raising my 30% cut in my salary. Again for DFA’s army of no work/no pay people—the backbone & flesh of our basic services,” Locsin said.

“Can’t regularize them; historically (Department of Budget and Management) has refused to add ‘plantilla items’ to DFA budget,” he said.
