PGMA pushes for new Salary Standardization Law

By Miriam P. Aquino

Manila (14 February) -- President Gloria Macapagal-Arroyo pushes for an additional 10 percent increase in salary and urges Congress to create a new Salary Standardization Law that will grant series of wage increases to the 1.2 million government employees who "work tirelessly to serve the country".

The chief executive said that in 2007, state workers were given 10 percent increase after the government garnered record revenue surpluses brought about by the implementation of the Expanded Value Added Tax (EVAT) Law thereby making the economy on a high growth track and even one of the best performing in the region.

In the said proposed increased, the President also gives particular focus to the public school teachers whom she calls the "backbone of our educational system".

This is just timely to counter the increased in expenditures of Filipinos like food, health and medical, education and other personal expenditures, reports showed. (PIA La Union) [top]
