Lawmaker wants government officials to become minimum wage earners

Gabriela party-list representative Arlene Brosas proposes a bill which will make government officials including senators and congressmen minimum wage earners.

“Kahit ang senador at mga kongresista, minimum wage natin para nang sa ganoon, eksakto. Magkano ang pamasahe, magkano ang pangkain, magkano ang lahat,” she said.

Laguna representative Sol Aragones, on the other hand, said that there are other ways to make public officials feel the plight of ordinary Filipinos.

“Kung gusto nating pag-aralan talaga ang nararanasan ng ating mga kababayan ngayon, baka may iba pang paraan para gawin ‘yun,” Aragones said.

But at the end of the day, Aragones said that it is up to the Civil Service Commission to decide on the salaries of government officials.

Gabriela party’s proposal is in connection to another bill seeking government officials to commute every Monday.

“Dapat ‘yung mga kongresista, ‘yung mga senador, maranasan nila. At saka ‘yung Pangulo mismo maranasan niya kung paano talaga ‘yung hirap na dinadanas ng ating mga mamamayan,” Brosas explained.
