Workers launch national minimum wage campaign

The group All Workers Unity held a rally on April 25, 2016 from Rizal Park to the Department of Labor and Employment (DOLE) in Intramuros Manila to launch their national minimum wage campaign.

The group challenges the outgoing Benigno Aquino government to raise private sector workers’wage by P750 and set the minimum salary of P16,000.

Members of Kilusang Mayo Uno, Gabriela Women’s Party and the Pinagkaisang Samahan ng Tsuper and Operators Nationwide danced on the street to dramatize their campaign.

The event is a warm up activity for the massive Labor Day rallies on May 1, the groups said. (With reports by Jonamel Baquiran. Photos by Danica del Valle)
