Many jeepney drivers all over the country have lost their jobs due to the pandemic and the jeepney phase-out. Their livelihoods have come to a stop because of COVID-19 and it’s heartbreaking to see them try to make ends meet in other ways, some even resorting to going to the streets with signs asking for help. In Makati; however, jeepney drivers who lost their jobs are being tapped now to convert their jeeps into what Mayor Abby Binay calls “Mobile Learning Hubs.”
“Mabibigyan ng hanapbuhay ang mga jeepney driver sa Makati na nawalan ng trabaho dahil sa pandemya sa pamamagitan ng proyektong Mobile Learning Hub ng lungsod, ayon kay Mayor Abby Binay,” the My Makati Facebook page wrote in a note.
