MANILA, Philippines — Domestic workers in Metro Manila are set to receive a P500 increase to their monthly wage rate, the Department of Labor and Employment (DOLE) said.

According to the DOLE, the Regional Tripartite Wages and Productivity Board (RTWPB) of the National Capital Region issued a wage order on December 12, granting a P500 increase to their present wages from P6,000 to P6,500. This will take effect on January 3, 2024.


Apart from NCR domestic workers, their counterparts in the Caraga region will also receive a P1,000 monthly wage increase which will be effective on January 1, 2024, as the RTWPB of Caraga issued a wage order.

Furthermore, an additional P15 wage increase will be effective by May 2024, again raising their wages from P370 to P385.
