“The Aquino government should really be alarmed. It would not be long before Aquino feels the brunt of workers’ and people’s discontent and resentment over his government’s anti-people policies.”
This was the statement of labor center Kilusang Mayo Uno in response to Malacanang’s downplaying of the drop in the satisfaction rating of Pres. Aquino as revealed in the new survey by Social Weather Stations released yesterday, saying that the continuous drop in Aquino’s satisfaction rating since November 2010 is a clear proof of the workers’ and people’s discontent over Aquino’s anti-people policies.
The recent SWS survey which was conducted from June 3 to 6 showed Aquino’s net satisfaction rating at +46, indicating a drop from +51 in March 2011 and from +64 in November 2010.
“Even Aquino’s order to his communications group last March to aggressively promote his administrations’ achievements cannot do anything to reverse the drop. The drop in Aquino’s satisfaction ratings is a consequence of his playing-deaf to the people’s clamor for economic and social changes that would really benefit workers and people,” said Roger Soluta, KMU secretary-general.
“His government only has recycled programs of previous regimes to boast of, programs that have only worsened the economic condition of the Filipino workers and people, like the public-private partnership and labor-export policy,” he added.
Aquino’s lower score among class D respondents, where he got +44, seven points down from the +51 in March, indicates that those in the poorest sections of society are the ones who express discontent over the Aquino regime. KMU said that Aquino’s programs toward the poor have only aggravated poverty.
“His ‘limos’ measures like the Pantawid Pasada and P22 Cost of Living Allowance were unable to provide even immediate relief to the suffering of workers and the people from high prices. His well-funded Conditional Cash Transfer (CCT) program also failed to alleviate extreme hunger and poverty in the country,” Soluta added.
“Malacañang’s attempt to downplay the dip in Aquino’s ratings indicates that the Aquino administration does not recognize the workers’ and people’s growing dissatisfaction over the Aquino government and its refusal to heed workers’ and people’s demand for social and economic changes. Aquino should really brace himself for outbursts of the people’s growing outrage,” Soluta ended.
