- An online report has claimed that Russia needs domestic workers
- It also claimed that the salary grade of domestic workers in Russia is from P50,000 to P75,000
- However, it has been reported that the claim was misleading
A report claimed that Russia needs domestic helpers with a salary range of up to P75,000.
However, KAMI learned that the claim was misleading.
According to Rappler, the report was published by website sasafeed.com on October 11.
“Russia, Nangangailangan ng Domestic Helpers at Nag-Offer ng Sahod na P50k Hanggang P75k,” it read in the headline.
The report also mentioned that Russia needs musicians and other professionals. The claim was allegedly from the Department of Labor and Employment (DOLE).
However, Rappler reported that the DOLE has not made any official announcement regarding the employment of Filipino workers in Russia with a salary grade of P50,000 up to P75,000.
DOLE Information and Public Service Director Rolly Francia has confirmed to Rappler that no announcement about that has been made.
"The Secretary of Labor even said that DOLE has yet to send a [Technical Working Group] to thresh out provisions of a proposed bilateral agreement that will govern the deployment of Filipino workers to Russia," he said.
During the interview of Labor Secretary Silvestre Bello III in DZMM's TeleRadyo program, "Failon Ngayon sa DZMM" on October 7, he mentioned the salary grade of domestic workers in Russia.
“Kailangan din nila ng household service workers eh. Eh ang dami n'yan, ang dami sigurong pupunta d’yan. Ang sahod do’n para sa mga household workers, ang minimum P50,000. Ang minimum wage para sa household workers ay P50,000. Minimum ‘yun, umaabot ng P75,000,” Bello said.
However, Bello did not specifically say that Filipinos who would be working as domestic helpers in Russia would receive the exact salary range.
