0 917

Some 900 casual workers in the city government of Roxas City in Capiz may soon get a pay hike, if councilor Powell del Rosario’s efforts are successful.

Del Rosario called for the higher salaries, citing increases in prices of basic goods and transportation.

Mayor Angel Alan Celino had also planned for such a wage hike.

The city government has 900 casual employees who receive P150 to P160 per day.

For his part, City Councilor Matthew James Viterbo, chairman of the Committee on Finance and Appropriation, said he will check with the City Budget Office if it can afford it.
