MANILA, Philippines – The Department of Labor and Employment (DOLE) reminded employers that the remaining P10 increase in the cost of living allowance for minimum wage earning workers in Metro Manila must reflect in their salary beginning November 15 retroactive to November 1.

“This is [the] last P10 to the P30 COLA that was implemented last May 21 so this should be included in the payroll for minimum wage earners,” Labor Secretary Rosalinda Baldoz told Radyo Inquirer 990AM on Friday.

She said by November, the minimum wage for Metro Manila workers should be P456.

Last May, the NCR Wage Board issued a new wage order introducing a P30 hike in the COLA allowance for workers in Metro Manila that would be paid in two tranches. The first of the two tranches took effect last June, thereby granting an additional P20 COLA for Metro Manila workers.
