Fabregas settled for a job that was lower in rank but paid five times his present salary in the Philippines, the report added.
The dzBB report said Fabregas may be getting the equivalent of nearly P100,000 a month at his new job compared to his P20,000 monthly pay at PAGASA.
On the other hand, the report quoted Philippine Weathermen Employees Association head Mon Agustin as saying weather forecasters have yet to receive the benefits promised them last month.
Agustin said they have yet to get the benefits that the Science and Budget Departments promised would come in the first week of July.
The two departments had promised to act on the forecasters’ benefits after then administrator Nathaniel Servando left for abroad, reportedly to work in Qatar.
PAGASA forecaster Jun Galang, in an interview on dzBB radio, said he is still waiting for his benefits.
“Wala pa, patuloy pang naghihintay (We have not received our benefits. We continue to wait),” he said.
But in the meantime, he said they will continue to do their jobs. — LBG, GMA News
