As earlier reported in the case of businesses, the service sector is the worst hit, even for employees or workers. Across Tagbilaran City’s 15 barangays, those working in the service sector are the ones most affected by the pandemic. 5,154 jobs is equivalent to 73% of total jobs lost when Enhanced Community Quarantine was imposed in the city.
Those working in the transport sector also lost jobs. At least 846 workers in the sector (from drivers of public utility vehicles to company drivers and tourist van operators) lost their main source of income because of mobility restrictions.
How many of these jobs will be able to recover? Another rapid job loss survey is needed to determine this. If you want to support this, please let us know.
