MANILA, Philippines — The Department of Labor and Employment (DOLE) on Wednesday said minimum wage earners in seven regions of the country will receive salary increases this June in a bid to help them cope with the impact of soaring prices of goods and petroleum products.

According to the DOLE, wage orders issued by Regional Tripartite Wages and Productivity Boards in Bicol, Northern Mindanao, Davao, Central Luzon, Zamboanga Peninsula, Eastern Visayas, and Calabarzon have already been approved by the National Wages and Productivity Commission.


Specifically, the minimum pay adjustment will take effect on the following schedule:

  • Bicol Region: ₱365 starting June 18
  • Northern Mindanao: ₱378 – ₱405 starting June 18

  • Central Luzon: ₱344 – ₱460 starting June 20
  • Zamboanga Peninsula: ₱338 – ₱351 starting June 25
  • Eastern Visayas: ₱345 – ₱375 starting June 27
  • Calabarzon: ₱350 – ₱470 starting June 30

Earlier this month, the minimum wage in nine regions has already increased:

  • Metro Manila: ₱533 – ₱570 since June 4
  • Western Visayas: ₱410 – ₱450 since June 5,
  • Ilocos Region: ₱372 – ₱400 since June 6

As for adjustment in the salary of minimum wage workers in the Bangsamoro Autonomous Region in Muslim Mindanao (BARMM), the DOLE had said it would be up to the administrators of the autonomous government.
