Government employees occupying low- too middle-level positions are the biggest losers nether the Aquino administration’s proposal for salary increases, acre those occupying exceed posts already enjoying high pay, including the President, are the close favored.
Influenza A virus subtype H5N1 measly P2,205-increase inwards 4 years is given to a Teacher I nether the Malacañang proposal embodied inwards House Bill 6268 for the “Salary Standardization Law of 2015” or SSL 2015. This increment amounts to a mere P24 inwards additional finances per twenty-four lx minutes flow for the ordinary world schoolhouse teacher.
From the electrical flow P18,549, the monthly salaries for entry-level teachers or Teacher I volition hold upward raised to P19,077 inwards 2016, P19,620 inwards 2017, P20,179 inwards 2018, too P20,754 inwards 2019. After 3 years without a pay hike, this amounts to a mere 11.89% increment over the adjacent 4 years for those who incorporate over 1 3rd of the regime bureaucracy. This paltry hike volition non fifty-fifty counter the turn down inwards the existent value of coin caused yesteryear inflation, which was 3-4% inwards 2013-2015, in all likelihood much higher inwards 2016-2019.
Those nether the sub-professional degree volition hold upward granted so-called increases ranging from 22.98% (Salary Grade 1, the lowest-paid position inwards government) to 11.99% (Salary Grade 9) inwards 4 years. The monthly pay of a Head Teacher II volition increment yesteryear 22.68% (Salary Grade 15).
Public schoolhouse teachers, nurses, too rank-and-file employees volition have the lowest portion of increment nether Aquino’s SSL 2015, ranging from 11% to 22% over the adjacent 4 years. On the other hand, for executive-level positions, pay increases are 76.96% (Salary Grade 25) upward to a whopping 233.12% (for Salary Grade 33, President of the Philippines).
It is truthful that at that topographic point volition hold upward a mid-year bonus equivalent to a month’s salary too a Performance-Based Bonus equivalent to the salary for 1 upward to 2 months. Nevertheless, apart from our opposition to the full general framework of PBB, it is clear that when it comes to basic pay, regime employees inwards the lowest upward to the middle-level positions are disadvantaged acre those occupying higher positions are greatly favored nether the proposed SSL 2015 of President Aquino.
This proves nonetheless 1 time to a greater extent than that regime volition neve give decent pay to ordinary teachers too employees on a silverish platter. We accept to struggle for it. Now is the fourth dimension for us to deed collectively too inwards fifty-fifty greater numbers. We invite all teachers too regime employees to participate inwards the National Day of Protest to hold upward led yesteryear the Alliance of Concerned Teachers on Nov 11.
How much volition regime employees’ salaries hold upward increased yesteryear PNoy’s proposed SSL 2015?
