Due Process

by Joaquin G. Bernas, S.J.

51Q7tpQbX9L._SY344_BO1,204,203,200_“The elementary notion of due process is that it is a law which hears before it condemns.”

Source: –A Living Constitution: The Ramos Presidency” by Joaquin G. Bernas, S.J. 1st ©1999 and 2nd ©2000 printing. Pg. 42 of chapter 2 “The Fear of Martial Rule: Intimations of Authoritarianism”

Comment: — Many people, in the Philippines, are being wrongfully accused before ever having their side of the story heard out. Even if the citizen, or foreigner, is guilty they do have the right to be heard before being condemned, but here in the Philippines, the person is condemned first and than they are left to confirm that it is false and even when they are proven innocent later they are still left to pay the penalty fees that would of never of happen if they were heard out first.

Reading a letter from one side of the story does not in any way confirm if it is true and that is very much what government officials do, they hear only the side of their workers instead of also the side of the one being accused.

Legal Age to work in the Philippines (DOLE)

legal age to work - DOLE_Logo101206The Philippines’ Department of Labor and Employment

My wife’s sister, who is really a half sister, is graduating from high school at the age of 16…the year 2015 is maybe the last year high school will graduate at 16.

My question is “why are they not allowing those between the ages of 16-18 to work even if a worker’s permit might be required?” In the USA, back in the early 80s, maybe 70s, we were allowed to work but not past 10pm and if it was a holiday, we could work on that day, as long as it did not conflict with school….my first job was at a fast-food called “Jack N’ the Box” and I made more than the minimum wage which made one of my sisters jealous.

The Philippines’ Department of Labor and Employment, under Republic Act No. 9231 (December 19, 2003), claims:

“(3) No child below fifteen (15) years of age shall be allowed to work between eight o’clock in the evening and six o’clock in the morning of the following day and no child fifteen (15) years of age but below eighteen (18) shall be allowed to work between ten o’clock in the evening and six o’clock in the morning of the following day.”

It very much seems to be saying what those in the USA have to abide by, but what is strange is that most of the kids, for the past 10, plus years, legally was a graduate from high school and they still are not allowed to work in a fast-food, grocery store or an SM.

To legally be a graduate without the ability to work, because of what they say the DOLE is claiming, waists two very important years of a person’s life.
