Senator Imee Marcos lashed out at the Civil Service Commission (CSC) for allegedly causing unemployment in the midst of the COVID-19 pandemic for failing to certify applicants who qualify or qualify for thousands of government jobs that have been vacated inside of many years. Marcos, as a defender of CSC's 2021 budget, said that more than 269,000 permanent government positions will be vacant until 2019 and there will still be almost 178,000 vacancies as of this August. “If the government seat is vacant, the unused budget for hiring or hiring for vacant positions is declared annual savings. The said savings are used as a bonus that is shared by the agency officials, ”Marcos said. According to Marcos, this includes P7.6 billion from the miscellaneous personal benefits fund (MPBF) in the 2020 budget which remains unused to recruit new personnel from various government agencies. The fight within the government and the inaction of the CSC further exacerbated and delayed the recruitment of people for vacant government positions, Marcos added. "It will be difficult for CSC to defend the budget proposal for next year if there is no initiative to have a smooth running of the office," Marcos warned. Marcos recommended that the CSC expedite the implementation of the policy so that contractual employees who have long been in government work where they do not receive commission-certified salaries and benefits will soon be eligible. “The government should stop being the biggest promoter of endo or end-of-contract employment. Let us stop the abuse and mistreatment of government contractual employees who only get paid from miscel-laneous and other operating expenses, ”Marcos said. Marcos added that the fixed funds for government vacancies that continue to be vacant should be removed from the proposed budget by government agencies and instead used only for government funds in pandemics. response.
