26 Aug – Alden Richards recently admitted that he is now focusing on surviving one day at a time, knowing full well that there is nothing much he can do about the pandemic.
As reported on Inquirer, the actor whose acting jobs and restaurant business are both affected by the current situation, stated that he is trying to stay positive about the future, believing that it will end soon.
"Right now, I'm currently focused on surviving each day, not just for myself, but for my family and those who depend on me. These are some of the things that motivate me to fight every day," he said.
Richards, who is not only providing for his family but his team and employees of his F&B business as well, shared that he is trying his best to keep everybody for as long as he can and paying their salaries despite not having any work.
"In our restaurants, no workers have been let go. But since the workforce has to be limited, we decided to put them on rotation, so at least no one loses his or her job. Every week, there's a different set of servers and managers," he added, stressing that he could not bear to cause these people's loss of income.
