Vendors hold protest rally

CEBU, Philippines - Citing decrease in sales, at least 100 placard-bearing vendors from Lagtang Public Market yesterday morning trouped to the Talisay City Hall to appeal to Mayor Socrates Fernandez to reopen the old market in barangay Tabunok.
It's been almost three months already since the vendors were moved to Lagtang Public Market, but since day one, they have been complaining about low sales at the new location.
"Daghan sa among mga kauban nga tindera ang nanira na tungod sa kahinay sa halin," said Marivic Lasquete, vice president of the fish section vendors.
Lasquete said since the transfer, their sales have dropped from the average of P1,000 per day to P100.
She said children of these vendors have stopped going to school.
"Kining kitaa di na gyud ni makasapal sa pagbayad sa among mga utang," she said.
Vendors see the location of Lagtang Public Market as the main reason why market-goers prefer the satellite markets.
Meanwhile, tricycle drivers, who earlier asked the city government to re-open the Tabunok terminal, supported the rallying vendors.
Tricycle driver Domingo Dela Rita, who attended yesterday's rally, said the city has to re-open the Tabunok terminal as most of their passengers' destination is Tabunok.
He said since they usually have no Lagtang-bound passengers, the city should not force them to use the provided Lagtang terminal if the only reason to go there is to load or unload passengers.
Lagtang is at least one kilometer from Tabunok, hence, most tricycle units while waiting for passengers, are crammed in the busy streets of Tabunok.
The report of the council committee on Laws submitted to the council yesterday, however, denied the re-opening of the old terminal, saying doing it would be tantamount to violating the ordinance which transferred the reference point to all tricycle units to

    Analysis of Markets and Public Policy Chapter 8 Questions for Review 1. Why would a firm that incurs losses choose to produce rather than shut down? Losses occur when revenues do not cover total costs. If revenues are greater than variable costs, but not total costs, the firm is better off producing in the short run rather than shutting down, even though it is incurring a loss.
