SAPAT NGA BA? (pay hike' an insult to the working class' -group)

MANILA, Philippines - The P20 minimum wage increase in Metro-Manila was lambasted by the Alliance of Progressive Labor (APL) as an “insult to the working class."

“We demand a legislated, across the board, nationwide wage increase and 0% tax exemption for minimum wage earners," Daniel L. Edralin, APL Chairperson, said in a statement.

Edralin said that the P20 wage “hike" would not even make a dent in alleviating the pressures of increasing prices of oil, food and power costs. Moreover, it would not be enjoyed by all minimum wage earners, he said.

The APL explained that wage orders come with numerous exemptions that limit the effective coverage of the minimum wage adjustment. The group also cited what is known as the “BAMBI Law," (Republic Act 9178), which automatically exempts workers employed in micro business enterprises or BMBES.

“The bigger problem is the fact that the minimum wage laws are wantonly violated," Edralin said. “This proves once again the need to reform the wage setting mechanism in the country. The regional wage boards simply cannot live up to their mandates of ensuring the workers’ equitable share in the fruits of his labor."

Instead of regional minimum wages, what is needed is to have a national minimum wage that acts as the “floor wage" for all workers and then higher industry minimum wages set by industry-wide wage boards. - GMANews
