This will raise the wages of domestic workers in cities and first-class municipalities from P5,000 to P6,000, while for other municipalities, from P4,000 to P5,000.


The wage order was published on Saturday and will take effect 15 days after, on February 19.

“The increase considered the results of the consultation and public hearing, as well as the needs of domestic workers and their families, the employer’s capacity to pay, and the existing socio-economic conditions in the region,” DOLE said.
