MANILA – Senior citizens and persons with disability (PWDs) of Manila will soon have a chance to work at McDonald's, an American fast-food chain.

The city government of Manila entered into a memorandum of agreement (MOA) with the personnel provider of McDonald’s for the implementation of a program that would provide jobs for senior citizens and PWDs.

The agreement was signed last March 12 by Manila Mayor Honey Lacuna and J&F Food Corporation Training Consultant Sofia Loriega, with Vice Mayor Yul Servo Nieto and Secretary to the Mayor Atty. Marlon Lacson as witnesses, and Manila's public employment service office head Fernan Bermejo in attendance.

In a statement on Monday, Lacuna said the program aims to re-integrate the senior citizens and PWDs as "productive members of society."

Under the MOA, three senior citizens or PWDs will be hired per outlet of McDonald’s located within the city of Manila, and those qualified will undergo the necessary training.

There are 50 outlets located in the capital.
