Firms offering jobs for PWDs to get incentives 2

The Department of Labor and Employment (DOLE) announced giving incentives to companies and employers whose workforce is comprised of at least 10% of persons with disabilities (PWDs). Currently the law mandates at least 1% of company’s workforce be made up of PWDs.
