Various labor organizations lead by the Bukluran ng Mangagawang Pilipino (BMB) held simultaneous protects actions in NCR, Regions 4A, 6, and 7 in front of offices in various Regional Tripartite Wages and Productivity Board (RTWPB) last July 10, 2024 on. These workers groups reiterate that the current wage increase is now enough. Citing the Wage Rationalization Act (RA6727) enacted in 1989 as the source of the problem, the group asserts that this act was designed to create a uniform wage system across the country. However, to the BMP and countless workers, it has been a tool that prioritizes the capacity of employers to pay over the fundamental right of workers to earn a living wage. The BMP asserts that this legislation has consistently failed to address the stark realities faced by the labor force.
