To give the elderly an opportunity to earn, McDonald’s Philippines signed a memorandum of agreement with the Pasay City government to hire senior citizens and people with disabilities (PWDs) in 14 restaurants in the city.

“This is a shining example of corporate social responsibility. By hiring senior citizens and PWDs, they will be amply rewarded by their customers by patronizing their products,” Mayor Emi Calixto-Rubiano said following the signing of the agreement. Calixto-Rubiano also lauded the company for hiring the elderly and PWDs in all of their restaurants in the city.

“McDonald’s will be attracting more customers because of what it gives back to the community,” the mayor said.

Calixto-Rubiano was the principal author of Republic Act 10911, or the “Anti-age Discrimination In Employment Act,” during her term as congresswoman representing the lone district of Pasay. Under the agreement, the fast-food chain will hire 42 senior citizens and PWDs in 14 restaurants in Pasay City.

They will all have the opportunity to earn and, at the same time, learn new skills through a training program approved by the Public Employment Service Office (Peso) of Pasay and the Department of Labor and Employment.

Meanwhile,  McDonald’s said they will also provide the same world-class training to their directly hired employees.

Under the agreement, hired senior citizens and PWDs will be assigned as order presenters, drink drawers and table managers from three to six months. Senior citizens will work for not more than four hours a day, while PWDs will work in shifts that are applied to regular crew members.

Interested applicants may apply at the Pasay Peso located at the third floor of the Pasay City Hall.

They must bring a medical certificate to prove they are still fit to work despite their age and disabilities.
