Lacson also encouraged companies to hire PWDs. In her words, “If you hired a PWD worker you will enjoy a special tax exemption”.

Acebuque also gave a message directed to job seekers. She gave career counseling including interview tips and etiquette.  Acebuque reminded jobseekers that soft skills such as communication skills, analytical and critical thinking and appropriate attitude matter in job hunting.
