No tattoo? Baliwag Lechon Manok’s job requirement was criticized by netizens
BALIWAG LECHON MANOK – The Lechon manok brand received massive criticism following its “NO TATTOO” requirement for grillman and cook.
It was just recently when Public Information Office – City of Baguio announced that Baliwag Lechon Manok is looking for more grillman or food handler, cashier/receptionist, and cook.
The requirements for those who were interested to apply are stated in the said post.
Apparently, what caught the attention of netizens is the “NO TATTOO” requirement for grillman and cook.
It is being highlighted for jobseekers to see first.
But some netizens find the requirement “discriminatory.”
Among those who reacted to the said job posting is no less than social media personality, Senyora.
“Ok lang kayo Baliwag Lechon? Baka lagnat lang yan,” Senyora commented.
A netizen mentioned PIO-Baguio hoping that they could filter the “discriminatory job vacancy posts” since tattoos are all “part of Cordilleran culture.”
Another netizen said that even the Vice President (Sara Duterte) has tattoos.
A certain Kurt Daryl stressed that a good attitude is the basis of excellent customer service and not inks.
Baliwag Lechon Manok has yet to issue any statement regarding the job posting.
It seemed that PIO-Baguio has deleted the job posting.
Meanwhile, it was in 1985 when Dwight and Dolores Salcedo established Baliwag Lechon Manok, after Dolores’ hometown of Baliwag, Bulacan.
They have expanded their menu over time to include beloved foods like liempo and chicharon.
Nearly 25 years after it was founded, Baliwag has become one of the most recognizable Filipino brand names thanks to the couple’s straightforward and practical management of their business.
