Baliwag Transit and Baliwag Lechon Manok
BALIWAG TRANSIT – One of the major bus companies in the country was mistaken as Baliwag Lechon Manok.
The Lechon manok brand continues to receive massive criticism following its “NO TATTOO” requirement in its job posting.
Earlier, the 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 told PIO-Baguio to 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.
While Baliwag Lechon Manok has yet to issue any statement regarding the controversial job requirement, a bus company bearing the name of Baliwag was mistaken as the Lechon brand.
In a conversation retrieved by the Facebook page Tata Lino, a netizen told the bus company: “Di na kame bibili ng Lechon Manok sa inyo!”
Baliwag Transit, Inc. replied: “Hi, Ka-Baliwag! Hindi po kami ung nagtitinda ng Manok. Baliwag Lechon Manok at Liempo po yun. Bus Company po kami.”
As expected, it generated mixed reactions from netizens.
