A mayor showed how supportive he is of the love affairs of his single employees that he granted them a paid leave to find their true love.
Ahead of Valentine’s Day, General Luna, Quezon Mayor Matt Erwin Florido wants his single employees to catch up and find themselves a good date. To show his support, Mayor Matt, on Thursday, granted them a paid leave of absence.
On Facebook, Mayor Matt wrote, “PARA SA MGA LGU EMPLOYEES NA SINGLE: Pinapayagan ko kayo mag LEAVE sa February 12. Ilaan n’yo ang buong araw sa paghahanap ng inyong forever upang makaabot kayo sa February 14. With pay ang leave n’yo, kasi naka support ako sa pinagdadaanan n’yo. Ok? Lab u! #MAYORwithaHEART”
Mayor Matt soon realized that February 12 is a holiday and corrected himself by saying in jest that the single employees have more time to work on finding their Valentine date.
“PS. Dahil holiday nga pala ang February 12 at Chinese New Year, maaari kayong mag file ng leave sa February 11. Mahaba-haba ang oras n’yo para maghanap,” he added.
In an interview with GMA, Mayor Matt explained that his objective in giving his single employees a paid leave is to make sure everyone will be happy on Valentine’s Day amid the pandemic. He said that the initiative is a small reward for their hard work and diligence.
