Philippines Minimum Wage

Aloha Everyone,

The government is raising people’s minimum wage by 100 pesos per day. Current minimum is 300 pesos and up depending on the area of the Philippines.

Interns are those who are newly graduated from hospitality schools. They work free for up to 1 year. If they stay on, they become casual employees and they are then entitled to minimum wage but no benefit.

The highest and most coveted job is to become regular employee. They receive minimum wage, benefits and are difficult to be terminated. Employer must go through arbitration, so the more likely scenario is to make their job harder and put them in difficult situations. This is done to force them to resign.

Aloha -- Cathi
