The 31-year-old mayor revealed that the city government aims to regularize the contractual or casual employees. The city would gradually regularize the employees since he could not promote them all at the same time.
“Regularization of employees (yung next batch natin nasa 617 empleyado na 15 yrs [years] pataas nang kontraktwal.. kung pwede lang sanang sabay-sabay na lahat, pero kailangan strategic at responsable ang pag gawa natin nito),” Sotto said.
