CL, Manila prices barely differ

August 3, 2018

by IBON Foundation

The minimum wage in Central Luzon was hiked to Php400 per day, but since there is almost no difference between the prices of goods and services in the region and in Metro Manila, the amount – as with the National Capital Region’s minimum wage of Php512 – remains insufficient for the workers and their families. IBON estimates the daily family living wage to be Php979 for a family of five. #NutriAsiaWorkers
