Senator Ronald “Bato” dela Rosa told over 11,000 ABS-CBN employees, who are at risk of losing their source of income during a pandemic, to just find other jobs should the broadcasting giant stop operations with the non-renewal of its franchise.

“Hanap ng ibang trabaho para mabuhay, magsumikap, may ibang paraan pa naman siguro para mabuhay tayo. Hanap ng ibang jobs,” Dela Rosa said.

[Find other jobs so you can live, make an effort, there are probably other ways to make a living.]

“Alangan namang sabihin ko sa kanila na maghimagsik kayo, magwala kayo, hindi naman pwede yun. Hanap na lang kayo ng ibang trabaho para mabuhay ang pamilya ninyo,” he added.

[What can I say to them, revolt? Throw fits of rage? That’s not the right thing to do. Just find other jobs so your family can live.]

The House of Representatives is set to make a decision on ABS-CBN’s bid to renew their franchise for 25 more years.

If the members of the House franchise committee vote yes, ABS-CBN’s franchise will still be up for plenary deliberations.

A majority of no votes would lead to a permanent shutdown of the ABS-CBN’s broadcasting service for the duration of President Rodrigo Duterte’s administration.
