Wala raw kwenta! Gov Marcos slams P25-wage increase in Metro Manila

0 110

Ilocos Norte Governor Imee Marcos slammed the P25-minimum wage increase approved by the Metro Manila Regional Wage Board earlier this month.

The Ilocos Norte politiko said the approved amount will not make a dent to lessen poverty in Metro Manila.

“Mukhang wala na talagang pag-asa ang mga manggagawa na maibsan ang pahirap na dinaranas nila ngayon. Ang P512 na kasalukuyang minimum wage na daragdagan ng P25 ay wala ring kabuluhan,” Marcos said.

She said the health of Filipinos is sacrifice for them to make ends meet.

“Kaya hindi na tayo nagtataka na samu’t saring extra job ang pinapasok ng marami nating kababayan para lang makahanap ng dagdag-kita kahit ang katumbas nito ay pagsasakripisyo ng kanilang kalusugan,” Marcos said.
