Raise the Minimum Wage of Filipinos (CALABARZON) to 500 pesos per day
This petition had 245 supporters
Many Filipino Households are experiencing poverty due to insufficient work employment, low income and other factors but for those who had been granted work are still experiencing poverty due to the low minimum wage the Philippines has to offer. So by increasing it, it will give positive impacts to, if not millions, thousands of Filipino workers all around the country.
Currently, Region IV-A or CALABARZON has a minimum wage ranging from ₱293.00-₱378.50 which is considered by many as insufficient for a family to live day by day but once it is increased to ₱500.00, it will not only provide the family a chance to live day by day, it will also give them a chance to improve many aspects that is included in their lives like food quality, living conditions, etc.
REASONS FOR INCREASE:
- 500 pesos will give more budget to Filipinos all around the country to live by their day to day life
- According to a research: The Impact of Legal Minimum Wages on Employment, Income, and Poverty Incidence in the Philippines (Paqueo, et, al. 2016), increasing the minimum wage can give companies the chance to increase the health benefits, boost the moral, work effort and the level of energy and productivity of their workers.
- According to Gavilan (2015), the current minimum wage of Filipinos is not enough for a meal that can provide the average amount of nutrition a person needs which leads to malnutrition and underweight to children from different families. This happens due to families allotting only approximately 43% of their monthly income for an entire day's meal so by increasing the minimum wage to 500, Filipino households will then have more budget to designate for meals.
- Lastly, in a publication according to Krisberg (2015), it showed that income is not only tied to health, but to the factors that create the opportunities for better health, such as safe homes, nutritious foods and good schools.
So with this petition, we not only help the current Filipino people who are suffering poverty but also to the future generations that will come after us.
So if this had touched your hearts, please support this petition with all your heart! Thank you!
