The House Bill No. 7196 seeks the increase of the monthly minimum wage of gov’t employees and nurses to P16,000.

MANILA, Philippines — The Makabayan bloc has filed a bill in Congress that seeks to increase the salaries of government employees and nurses.

The House Bill No. 7196 seeks the increase of the monthly minimum wage of said workers to P16,000.

The Makabayan bloc explained that Congress should prioritize their proposal after it doubled the salaries of soldiers and policemen.

The left-leaning lawmakers argued that raising the minimum wage is reasonable due to the increase in the prices of commodities and services as a result of the implementation of the Tax Reform for Acceleration and Inclusion (TRAIN) law. — UNTV News & Rescue
