President Rodrigo Duterte on Monday asked Congress to pass a new Salary Standardization Law that will cover the pay increases of government employees including teachers and nurses.
Duterte issued the call before a joint session of Congress for his fourth State of the Nation Address at the Batasang Pambansa in Quezon City.
"I therefore believe that it is now time for Congress to approve a new version of the Salary Standardization Law, ngayon na," Duterte told the lawmakers.
"Hindi naman masyadong malaki, pero it will tide you over during these hard times, a little bit bigger than before. This is intended to increase the salaries of national government workers including teachers and nurses," he explained.
