Two-tiered wage system to further pull down Filipino workers’ incomes – labor think tank

Two-tiered wage system to further pull down Filipino workers’ incomes – labor think tank | EILER, Inc. on Eiler

A labor think tank warned the Department of Labor and Employment (DOLE) and business groups against pushing the two-tiered wage system, saying the new wage system will generally pull down the already meager incomes of Filipino workers instead of raising compensation levels.

“Under the new wage system, companies can freely tinker with workers’ wages under the guise of raising productivity levels. They can surely get away with arbitrary computations on productivity to justify a downscaling of pay schemes or to deny a wage hike,” Escresa added.
