Incompetent Policy Makers

A business owner recently made the rounds online after appealing to the national government to be firm about their decisions on the quarantine rules in the country as it affects the operations of small businesses.  

Inchang Mendoza, owner of a restaurant and aesthetic and beauty clinic, said that around 32 staff of her food business and beauty salon were affected when the government said that it would place the metropolis under general community quarantine (GCQ), but suddenly reverted back to MECQ. 

She said that she already met her staff and bought some of the ingredients and supplies for her restaurant as part of their preparation for the supposed reopening, which was postponed again after the MECQ announcement of the IATF.  

“Dear government, maawa naman kayo sa mga taong sobrang naapektuhan na nagtatrabaho ng maayos,” she said. 

The Philippines is facing a pandemic and everything will depend on the decision of the government on what steps to take. With this in mind, it is important that the government, being the policy maker, should not make last minute policies that will affect business operations at a time when many companies have folded.

This is another reflection of the incompetence of a government that cannot empathize with its citizens.
