MANILA, Philippines — A pay hike is expected in 2024 for household helpers and minimum wage earners in Northern Mindanao (Region 10), the Department of Labor and Employment (DOLE) said Friday.

The Regional Tripartite Wages and Productivity Board (RTWPB) issued two orders on Tuesday, December 19, granting a total of P33 wage increase for non-agricultural and agricultural workers and as much as P1,500 wage increase for household helpers in Region 10 next year.


According to the DOLE, the P33 increment will be given in two tranches – P23 on January 11 and P10 on July 1, 2024.


The hike will raise the minimum wage of non-agricultural workers to P423-P438, and agricultural workers to P411 to P426 next year.

Another RTWPB order provides P500 and P1,500 growth in the salaries of domestic workers in chartered cities and first-class municipalities, and other municipalities, respectively, in Region 10. These increases will boost their wages to P5,000, the DOLE noted.

The DOLE said that the P33-pay hike will benefit 144,133 minimum wage workers in Northern Mindanao while the P500- and P1,500-salary increase will benefit 54,851 domestic workers, of which 11,000 are on live-in arrangements, in the region.

At least 267,300 full-time wage and salary workers, who are not minimum pay earners, in Northern Mindanao may also “indirectly benefit” from the P33-increase, according to the DOLE, “as a result of upward adjustments at the enterprise level arising from the correction of wage distortion.”
