20 displaced Out-of-School and unemployed individuals employed under the Comprehensive Livelihood and Emergency Employment Program (CLEEP) of the Department of Trade and Industry are now deployed in different citiesand provinces here in Caraga Region to conduct price monitoring of school supplies.

In an interview with Lorjean Sacote, Chief of the Consumer Welfare Division, iot was learned that these “Price Monitors” were hired by DTI on May 1 primarily to help in price monitoring, giving priorities on the prices of school supplies to check whether manufacturers’ suggested retail prices are reflected by retailers.

Each province according to Sacote has 4 Price Monitors to check 5 establishments per day wherein, every Monday of each week, prices of construction materials are monitored, Tuesdays are set aside to focus on the price monitoring of school supplies, and Wednesdays for basic commodities.

The Price Monitors are being paid 232 pesos per day equivalent to the minimum wage rate in Caraga Region.

To date, prices of school supplies in Caraga Region have been kept at last year’s level.

Barely a month before classes start, and for three weeks now, Consumer Welfare Division chief Sacote said, DTI has been monitoring prices of pad paper for all grade levels, notebooks and pencils and assures the public of a steady supply of school needs.

Part of the intensified price monitoring of basic school needs, DTI also continue to keep an eye of business establishments to put price tags on school supplies and warned them against profiteering. (Jocelyn E. Morano, dxBN-Radyo ng Bayan Butuan/ PIA-Caraga)
