PGMA urges Congress to pass a law providing 10% hike in gov't workers pay

San Fernando City, Pampanga (12 February) -- Here's good news for the government's over one million workers.

President Gloria Macapagal-Arroyo urged Congress yesterday to pass a law that will provide an additional 10 percent increase in the salaries of state workers via a new Salary Standardization Law.

In her speech keynoting the centenary of the Pampanga High School here, the President proposed the creation of a new Salary Standardization Law that will grant a series of pay increases to the 1.2 million government employees who "work tirelessly to serve the country."

The President said this proposed increase in pay will also benefit public school teachers whom she called the "backbone of our educational system."

State workers received a 10 percent pay increase in 2007 after the President said the government was able to garner record revenue surpluses brought about by the implementation of the Expanded Value Added Tax (E-VAT) Law.

The President added that since then, the economy has been on a roll and is now one of the best performing in the region. (OPS) [top]
