      I don’t agree. Dapat regular work day yung araw na yan. Si PNoy talaga pasikat lang. Yun lang kaya niyang gawin. Akalain mo ba naman gawing special non-working holiday yung December 24? Sinong magaling na presidente ang ginagawa yun?

    A straight path to improve the economy. more non working days. Gov. employees are paid for not working, common employees get double pay, which is double added to the price calculation of businesses. And all people will pay more, “improving” the economy. Noynoy wisdom….

  • alice_in_chains

    this is not favorable to contractual workers. but most will definitely and absolutely like this.  either the 24th or the 25th is fine. comown people, you must be joking!…magpakatototo nga kayo!!!
