The Regional Tripartite Wages and Productivity Board-National Capital Region (RTWPB-NCR) approved the PhP10 wage hike for workers in Metro Manila.

According to Nelson Hornilla, RTWPB-NCR Chairman, those earning minimum wage in Metro Manila will receive additional PhP10 Cost of Living Allowance (COLA) from their daily salary while the previous PhP15-COLA will be included in their basic pay.

Due to this, workers in agriculture, manufacturing and retail industries will receive a PhP454-daily rate while in non-agriculture sector, will receive PhP491 per day.

The wage hike in Metro Manila will be implemented effective 15 days after it has been published in the press.
