    nEWS: Legislated pay increase to cost jobs — Palace

    SEEKING to avert a mass layoff of workers and the closure of companies as a result of a legislated P125 across-the-board wage hike, Malacañang repeated that the Regional Tripartite Wages and Productivity Boards are still the best venues to hammer out a wage increase.

    Presidential Spokesman Ignacio Bunye said the legislated wage increase could have a serious backlash as both the Employers’ Confederation of the Philippines and the Philippine Chambers of Commerce and Industry had already opposed the passage of the bill.

    “Any wage hikes would definitely be most welcome but these have to be worked out over a harmonious and well-balanced industrial environment for investors, workers and jobseekers. [But] the regional wage boards would have a better feel of the particular circumstances in their areas,” he said.

    Bunye maintained that Malacañang was not seeking a head-on collision with Congress on the legislated wage hike, but only trying to “strike a balance between the interest of wage earners and those paying them.”

    “We don’t have to make a spat out of the wage issue because all stakeholders agree that we have to preserve jobs and create more, and accord some relief to our workers while keeping inflation under control,” he said. “We maintain that earnest and effective dialogues can [happen] under the auspices of the regional tripartite boards and this is being proactively pursued in the interest of both economic stability and social amelioration.”

    Malacañang shoots down House’s wage hike plan




    06/05/2006

    Malacañang yesterday expressed further disagreement with the House of Representatives’ proposal of a P125 across-the-board increase legislated wage hike, saying rhis is not needed at this time as a “well-balanced environment for investors and workers” should be given priority at the moment.

    In a statement, Press Secretary and concurrent presidential spokesman Ignacio Bunye said: “We don’t have to make a spat out of the wage issue because all stakeholders agree that we have to preserve jobs and create more, and accord some relief to our workers while keeping inflation under control.”

    This only means two things:

    1. Government is not sincere in helping the workers.
    2. Our economy is really in bad shape that employers cant afford to pay a decent wage, contrary to what Malacanang is saying that our economy is the best in years.

    I really believe that we have to increase our minimum salaries. After all, it will be the general public who will be happily affected with the increase. However, we should be careful on analyzing the situation that we have before such wage hike will be implemented.

    As of now, we have different minimum salary on each of the region, depending on what the Regional Wage Tripartite Board has approved. The passage of a P125 across the board wage hike will adversely affect the employers in regions where there are less minimum wage salaries since they cannot afford such increase. Otherwise, we might see in the future more companies who will be closing down because they cannot meet what is required by the law in terms of minimum wage salaries. This could trigger a negative effect in the economy and more importantly, this could trigger to less jobs available in the country. Maybe we could relate back to the Board since they are really in the know on how much could the regions afford in wage increases.

    The bill was passed in the lower house. Still, it will be deliberated in the Senate and will be submitted for the president for approval. Again, I am saying that I am in favor of the salary increase. However, a thorough analysis on the effect of such in our economy should really be appreciated.

    1. Government is not sincere in helping the workers.
    2. Our economy is really in bad shape that employers cant afford to pay a decent wage, contrary to what Malacanang is saying that our economy is the best in years.
    1. A legislated across-the-board wage hike means that many workers might be losing their jobs because their company cannot afford to keep more workers at a higher wage rate. To sustain the higher wage rates for its workers, some companies might have to lay off some of them.

    The need for wage hikes can be more properly addressed by regional wage tripartite boards. In these wage boards, both sides will be more adequately represented. The capacity of employers should be balanced with the needs of the workers to come to a compromise. Since not all employers can afford to shoulder the cost of higher salaries, some businesses may have to lay off workers or shut down entirely. This would be unfair to those who stand to lose their jobs in the event of a legislated wage hike.

    A legislated wage hike might not only lead to the lay off of many workers, but also to the closure of business, particularly small and medium enterprises (SMEs) which are the driving force of the economy.

    This is what the administration is trying to prevent, that is why it is pushing for regional wage boards to address this issue and strike a balance between workers' needs and their employers' capacity. Much better than a mere legislated wage hike which might cause many workers to lose their jobs and might have an adverse effect on the economy.

    2. Our economy is indeed doing better than it has been in years, but world oil prices are still rising. That's what causes the costs of doing business to also rise. While our economy is growing, it is not yet at a stage wherein a legislated across-the-board wage hike can be justified. The majority of businesses in the country comprise in SMEs which cannot afford wage hikes at this time. It's regional wage boards which should determine which companies can sustain higher wages for their workers. That way, the interests of both sides are better represented.

    This only means two things:

    1. Government is not sincere in helping the workers.
    2.* Our economy is really in bad shape that employers cant afford to pay a decent wage, contrary to what Malacanang is saying that our economy is the best in years.
    1. A legislated across-the-board wage hike means that many workers might be losing their jobs because their company cannot afford to keep more workers at a higher wage rate.* To sustain the higher wage rates for its workers, some companies might have to lay off some of them.*

    The government should therefore not trumpet this legislated wage hike when it cannot make true to its promise. This is giving false hopes to the workers. The idea of implementing a legislative wage hike is an exercise of teh police power because Congress saw to it that the interest of the people can be fully advanced if the said wage hike is mandatorily implemented on all sectors of society.

    The Regional Tripartite Wages and Productivity Board is proven to have failed the maximum protection of the workers. Besides, in the entire country, the prices of prime commodities have risen up. You cannot isolate one region from the other. The hardship and the impoverishment of the workers is already at alarming proportions nationwide be it from Aparri to Jolo.

    I guess strategy lang jud na sa mga company nga kuno they will close or fire workers Hehe thats not possible. Dapat gani mga 300 pesos ang gidagdag kay sa kamahal ron sa papliton. Im sure those companies who are against this salary increase are just trying to scare the government or the workers. They said that a 3 years ago, nya open ra man gihapon na nga mga companies until now? They says they will fire workers pero sige ra man gihapon hire? Ayaw ta pa blap aning mga company. We need that salary increase! Lets hope nga ang minimum wage will go up to 800 per day.
