Filipina fast-food crew in HK proves mindset matters over age

A Filipina Jollibee crew in Hong Kong is drawing attention on Facebook after her photo was posted by user Cassey Angela Guilermo-garganta Idica-Marcelino on Saturday, July 14.

The service crew was casually serving food and clutching a towel, but the eye-catching detail is the age of the crew: a grandma hustling in Jollibee Hong Kong Central!

In her post, Cassey said that seeing the elderly working is a norm in countries like Hong Kong, unlike in the Philippines where employees are terminated after 6-months when their contracts end.

“We always talk to her when we are off-duty,” Cassey told The Filipino Times.

According to her, the elderly, which they lovingly call nanay, has been working in Jollibee for almost 15 years.

She added that she is pleased with employers who respect and trust oldies who are dedicated to their work.

Meanwhile, netizens voiced out their sentiments saying that they hope to abolish age limit in the Philippine workforce. They added that applicants who are 40 years old and above do not get hired despite being qualified.

“If you go to Hong Kong, you will really see Filipino oldies working as crew. Try to observe and ask how their companies provide them with benefits. Even if they are Pinoys, the Hong Kong government give them the right treatment and we are equals when it comes to rights and laws.” Cassey told TFT.

Other commenters salute old people for working while they still can. One commenter also shared a similar experience in Jollibee New York.
