PH MINIMUM WAGE IS SO LOW IT IS NEARLY SLAVE LABOR

[Low minimum wages push Pinoys to work overseas]

 

Many unskilled and low-skilled OFWs would rather slave it out abroad where they earn much more than suffer nearly slave labor minimum wage in the Philippines, according to ACT-CIS Party-list Rep. Jocelyn P. Tulfo.

 

"Kasi konti na lang, slave labor na. How can any Filipino family live decently on less than P300 or P400 a day here in our country? The minimum wage for kasambahay is worse. Kaya sila napipiltang mag-abroad at iwan mga pamilya nila. Dapat na talagang baguhin ang sistema," Tulfo said.

The ACT-CIS congresswoman said, "our country should be upgrading the household service workers so they can work in skilled positions in hotels and hospitals, instead of homes. More dignified work for them. More importantly, we really should fix our minimum wage system which I think is one of the worst in the world."

 

"With the latest totals of Overseas Filipinos' remittances from January to November hitting $30.3 billion because of 4.1 percent growth, I am confident the Bangko Sentral ng Pilipinas would see the 2018 total of $32.213 billion surpassed when the 2019 full-year figures come in," said Tulfo, vice-chair of the House overseas workers affair committee.

 

"OFWs in Kuwait this year have sent home more remittances but the new partial deployment ban would affect future months’ money transfers," Tulfo noted.

 

Tulfo said, "our OFWs can easily set a new record in the $33 billion to $34 billion range because since 2017 they have been remitting over $3 billion every December." (END)
