Gov’t employees to get additional P10,000 bonus

By |


MANILA, Philippines — President Benigno Aquino III announced Thursday a P10,000 additional holiday bonus for 1.67 million government employees.

Aquino told reporters that the productivity enhancement bonus “is due to be given by December 15.”

Budget Secretary Florencio B. Abad said that the additional bonus would be on top of the second half of the regular 13th month pay plus a cash gift of P5,000 which are paid to employees starting November 15 up to 30. The first half of the 13th month pay is given May and June.

      ang talagang nangangailangan ng bonus na ‘to ay yung may maliliit na sahod lamang…dagdag pambili ng pagkain at gamot para sa kanila… pero sa mga sinuerte na malaki ang sahod hindi na sana dapat bigyan pa ng additional bonus na ‘to.

    these idiotic bonuses should be stopped….. total waste of money…. a great majority of govt employees do not deserve any kind of bonus… on the contrary their pay should be docked for being lazy, arrogant, ineffecient, you name it.  there i said it…

    • http://pulse.yahoo.com/_IJ2DA4ZHFHZOM2I2UCLJGFY7GI Shai

      hindi naman lahat govt employees ay tamad….marami rin sa kanila talagang nagtatrabaho.kaya lang meron din tamad lalo na mostly Muslim employees sa Mindanao… sorry pero yun ang totoo…first hand experience ‘to….anyway, sabi ko mostly, meaning hindi lahat sa kanila… kaya pag di mo binigyan ng bonus lahat govt workers damay ang mga nagsiserbisyo ng maayos, di ba? unfair din naman yun.

        grabe naman yang pag single out mo sa mga Muslim employees sa Mindanao…eh kakarampot lang ang mga yan na nasa gobyerno ah…mag-ingat ka sa mga pinagsasabi mo kasi ang paggegeneralize mo sa mga Muslim ay magdudulot na malaking gulo…

        tsaka ang tunay na Muslim ay yung talagang nagfollow sa teachings ng Islam…kung tamad hindi Muslim yun noh…pinapakita mo lang na uneducated ka…

    ang pagbibigay ng bonus ay indirect Economic Stimulus Scheme ng gobyerno.

    para lumago ang ekonomiya dapat may gumagastos para may bumili ng mga gawa sa mga pabrika at mga binebenta sa mga tindahan upang ang mga ito ay hinde malugi at magtanggal ng mga empleyado.

    yang bonus na binigay sa mga taga-gobyerno tuwing pasko sigurado mapupunta lahat sa Christmas shopping so masaya lahat, taga-gobyerno man o hinde.

      Marlon, yung Christmas bonus nila galing sa mga pribadong empleyado…. hahahahahahah….

      sino ang kawawa? mga nagtratrahabo sa mga pribadong kumpanya… hahahahah

        I think both private and gov’t workers contributed to this thru their income tax and purchase of goods with VAT.

      Agree! That’s the whole idea!

      Happy spending guys and enjoy your money!

    kawawa ang mga taga-private sector ang laki-laki ng taxes. tapos pag pumunta ka sa mga government agencies, it would take them a very long time to entertain you. kasi nagda-daldalan, kumakain o kung anu-ano pa…

    Wag ng maging KJ pa ang iba tungkol sa P10,000 na bonus. magkano lng yan pra ipagdamot sa kanila. khit sa pasko man lng ay medyo makaramdam naman sila ng kaginhawahan sa buhay. intindihin na natin ang kakulangan sa pera ng mga taong nsa pinas lalo na ang nagtatrabaho sa gobyerno.

    pero sana nman ay wag kayong tatamad tamad sa oras ng trabaho at ibigay ang totoong serbisyo publiko ng walang kapalit na suhol.

    Merry christmas!!

    Some government employees like public school teachers may never see this bonus reach them.  Some teachers I know haven’t even received their 13th month from 2010 while many will see their money come long after Christmas is over. Others would have to pay back loan sharks because they had to borrow money at high interest just to get by while they waited for their delayed salaries.

    10k worth of bonus is to score papogi points in the government sector…

    P10000 = $200 more or less…. isang trolley full of groceries okay na rin. Merry Christmas to all!

    Kaya sana magtrabaho na nang maayos ang mga tatamad-tamad  na empleyado sa gobyerno para sa pagbabago ng ating bansa. You guys are one of the vital  pillars of changes in our government. Work properly, do your job and provide your utmost service to common people in need lalo na sa mga government hospitals, schools, municipalities, certificates issuing government agencies and departments. This 10K will benefit many poor government employees pero sana nasama na rin ang mga senior citizens of our country. I wished and hoped that prosperity is now within reach and great changes will happen in our country the Philippines very soon.

    I think this is also an indirect strategy to increase gov’t spending since the GDP in previous 3 quarters are on the decline.

    Magagaling lang ang mga government employees kapag bonus ang usapan, pero kapag trabaho… PALPAK.

    Thanks very much Mr. President. It will help a lot of families a lot. I just hope they just save this amount for the tuition fee of us kids and not too much on food and gifts. We should wisen up, we have each other to hold on all year round, and an end of the year celebration on sharing may be a tad too much. As Miley says, its not how many mountains one has overcome, its the climb. Its better to save now than to be buried in debt later.

    Advance Christ Centered Christmas to one and all!

    To President Noynoy,

    Kami ang boss mo right? So pakinggan mo sana ako.

    Ok lang mga bonus na iyan. Pero sana, alisin mo ang mga tatamad-tamad at walang modong empleyado ng gubyerno mo (entire executive branch). At ikaw din sana maging ehemplo nila. 

    Di ko alam kung totoo ang mga balita, pero puro yosi ka lang daw sa malacanang. Ipakita mo sa mga galamay mo na binabayaran ka ng buwis ko para magtrabaho at hindi para mag-yosi.

    At since kami ang boss mo, wag na wag akong iilawan ng PSG mo sa daan ok? Ako ang boss mo so dapat ikaw ang tumabi pag dinaanan ako ng convoy mo. Magkaroon ka sana ng modo sa boss mo ok?

    President Noynoy,

    There is something wrong with this additional 10,000.00 bonus to be given to government employees.  Why?  There were budget cuts made and yet a bonus will be given to government employees?  What makes government employees better than the private employees who aside from the 13th month pay already receive their 5,000.00 bonus?  Much of the tax collected by the government came from the private sector.  Also no additional fare hike was given to ordinary public transport driver who has no fixed income and even 13th month pay received?  This is unfair to the entire voting public of the Philippines.  Yet last year there was no additional bonus given? Why, is this because starting next year, politicians will start to make feelers and early political presence will be done!  This is just a political move by the government.  There are more worthy projects where the money must be placed.  There are a lot of infrastructure that has to be built, classrooms to be added to decongest students in 1 classroom. Good teachers to be had and more state universities to be put up.  Your recent decision to give 10,000.00 bonus to government employees is a big blunder on your part please meditate on this move.  Are the government employees worth the extra remuneration you are giving?  The under privileged Persons with the Disability where no government educational program and supporting treatments has yet to put in place as a a full program.  Words are just words.  Everything has to be put in action.  Stop paying off your supporters (especially Abad who probably wants to run for public office) by giving bonus and getting their loyalty for the coming elections.  This is just early electioneering in the facade of Christmas spirit.

    Well done. And the non government employees will soon get, like here last year, also an increase of their daily wage, imaybe again n the vast amount of FIVE pesos a day.  Because decent living of common and government employees is very different.
