MANILA, Sept. 29 — The Caraga region wage board has approved the P15 salary hike for minimum wage workers.

National Wages and Productivity Commission Exec. Dir. Ciriaco Lagunzad III said the wage order was issued last Sept. 22.

The board has integrated P11 to the basic pay and an additional P4 to the cost of living allowance.

This brings the minimum wage rate of workers in the Caraga region to P258.

The new wage hike will be effective 15 days after publication of the wage order.

Of the 17 regional wage boards, Lagunzad said only eight have so far approved wage orders.

These are Regions 3, 6, 7, 8, 10, 13, National Capital Region and Autonomous Region in Muslim Mindanao.

"Inaasahan natin na ang ibang regional wage boards ay magkakaroon ng decision before yearend," he said. (PNA)
