The Regional Tripartite Wages and Productivity Board in the National Capital Region (NCR) has recently issued Wage Order No. NCR-24, approving a significant minimum wage increase for workers in private establishments. This wage adjustment, amounting to a 7% increase or P40.00, will directly impact employees in various sectors across the region.
CloudCfo, a trusted provider of comprehensive financial solutions, recognizes the importance of adhering to the new minimum wage rates and stands ready to assist its clients in navigating these changes effectively.
Wage Increase Details
Under Wage Order No. NCR-24, the daily minimum wage in the non-agriculture sector will rise to P610.00 from the previous rate of P570.00. Similarly, for the agriculture sector, service and retail establishments employing 15 or fewer workers, and manufacturing establishments regularly employing less than 10 workers, the minimum wage will increase to P573.00 from P533.00.
This adjustment is in line with Republic Act No. 6727, also known as the Wage Rationalization Act, and addresses the concerns raised by labor groups regarding the escalating costs of essential goods and commodities.
Additionally, the wage increase will have indirect implications for approximately 1.5 million full-time wage and salary workers earning above the minimum wage. Enterprises may need to make upward adjustments at the enterprise level to correct wage distortions, leading to improved compensation for these employees as well.
