Regine Velasquez expressed her support for DOLE's recommendation of imposing a 14-hour working limit for the showbiz industry, saying that it especially would benefit the constantly tired production teams.
She said in a PEP interview: "Aanhin mo yung may pera ka ’tapos pambabayad mo lang sa ospital?"
(What would you do with the money if you just use it to pay for your hospital)
Regine admits it's been difficult for her, but more so for the production team who work for 24 hours. Asia's Songbird has a cutoff of 12 midnight, but even that is already tiring.
The proposal might make it hard to produce work at a shorter span of time, but she says it would give more priority to everyone's health.
