The time to pass the new version of Salary Standardization Law is now, President Rodrigo Duterte told lawmakers from both houses during his SONA 2019.
He said he believes that it is now time for Congress to approve a new version of the Salary Standardization Law. “Ngayon na,” he said.
“And to the teachers, alam mo dito who toil and work tirelessly to educate our young,” he said.
“Kasali na po dito ‘yung hinihingi ninyo. 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,” President Duterte said.
