Substantially increase wages

The daily minimum wage remains insufficient for the basic needs of a family of six. The daily minimum wage in the National Capital Region (Php481), the highest in the country, is not even half of the family living wage of Php1,119. The gap between the minimum wage and the family living wage also continues to widen. For instance, the wage gap in 2016 (57%) is wider than that in 2015 (55%).

Substantially increase wages. Just wages bring peace. Base peace on people-centered development.
