I don’t know, but I think something really is wrong with this billboard.
Not only did it lump child workers particularly the plastic bag vendors, with criminals – “snatchers, hold-uppers and pick pockets” – the ad essentially point to the former as the most notorious among the “bad elements” that it listed.
Ok maybe there are child plastic vendors who do engage in petty street crimes, but certainly not all of them.
Sadly, this is part of Manila Mayor Alfredo Lim’s Linisin Ikarangal ang Maynila Campaign.
