      based on your profile you don’t need those additional hikes.
      ten pesos is better than nothing for minimum wagers.

      25 pesos per day isn’t coins for both the employer and minimum wage earners. That is an additional 750 pesos per month.
      Minimum wage earners don’t get taxed so they take that home without any deductions.
      Now, for the employer, that is an additional 750 pesos PER employee PER month.
