What will happen to Empower Work in 2024
The Empower Work program will undergo a significant transformation. It is rumored that, under the new Undersecretary of Social Development, integrated into the Ministry of Human Capital, the program will seek to focus on the compensation for work as a requirement to maintain the benefit. The continuity of the program is confirmed, but incumbents are expected to actively participate in work activities.
