Minimum Wage Rates in the Philippines 2020 (as of June 2, 2020 )

     The Wage Rationalization Act No.6727, mandates the minimum wage rates in the Philippines 2020. It also authorized the Regional Tripartite Wages and Productivity Boards (RTWPBs) to determine the daily minimum wage rates. The daily minimum wage rate is computed based on industry (non-agriculture, agriculture plantation, non-plantation) per locality (differs per region) and in some cases depending on the number of workers and the capitalization of enterprises (retail and service).

     Last October 30, 2018, a new wage increase was issued under the Wage Orders which apply to all sector workers and employees receiving the daily minimum wage.This increase was implemented with an aim that all minimum wages shall always be above the poverty threshold to help workers and their families meet basic needs.
