The celebrity couple Judy Ann Santos and Ryan Agoncillo are finding ways how they can help their employees while EQC is still effective.
Judy Ann understands how hard for normal people living with the pandemic.
They know how hard it is for the employees to lost their income to support their family’s needs.
As we all know, celebrity couple Judy Ann Santos and Ryan Agoncillo owned a restaurant called “Angrydobo”.
Since the lockdown was implemented on March 17, the said restaurant was in a state of disruption.
“With the lockdown, ang first thing in mind talaga namin, ano ang mangyayari sa mga staff?”
“Paano na sila?
Judy Ann said in an interview with Tim Yap after she was asked how the pandemic affects her business.
For the actress, it was their staff who were affected the most for their temporary closure.
“Lalo na iyong mga staff namin sa Westgate, kasi kakabukas pa lang ng second branch, e.
“We were just starting to get the hang of it, and then the lockdown happened.”
Judy Ann said that they are not expecting the sudden stop of the operation. And no one was prepared for this.
However, the famous actress has found a way to help their employees, whom she called “Cast Members”.
“What we did… some of our supplies, pinauwi na namin sa staff namin, kasi para ma-prepare din sila sa lockdown.
“Because it was a sudden lockdown, not everyone has prepared.
“Imbes na masayang iyong pagkain, mabuti itulong na lang namin.
As the owner, she also feels the weight of it for their employees
“Para lessen na iyong worries nila, at least for a week, or at least tatlong araw man lang, medyo kampante kami na okay iyong mga cast members namin.”
Some of the restaurants allowed to operate during the lockdown, but Judy Ann chose to not operate the restaurant business for the safety of their staff.
Until now they are still trying their best to give all the help for their staff as long as they can.
