“Where are you when we need you?”

This is the exasperated question of an increasing number of members of the private sector workers pension fund who’ve lost their jobs in the deepening economic crisis.

Angrily, they are asking how it is that SSS boss Romulo Neri is committing to “invest” PhP 12.5-B to the so-called economic stimulus fund but will not lend money to its jobless members “because they have no capacity to pay back any money they will borrow from their own pension fund. WTF!!!???

But wait, SSS says it will make emergency jobs available.

All of 2,000 jobs.

If this is not tokenism bordering on insult, nothing is.
