The city government of Iloilo mulls returning the daily rate of job hires to P500.

Mayor Jerry Treñas has tasked the finance committee to look into the feasibility of this plan.

The job hires are currently being paid P400 per day. (

According to Treñas, there are still unpaid taxes and once these are collected, the daily rate of job hires might be raised.

The city mayor, meanwhile, clarified that Iloilo City has no budget shortfall.

The daily rate of the job hires was reduced last year due to the Covid-19 pandemic.
