Erap’s b-day blowout to Manila City Hall employees? A salary hike

As he celebrates his 80th birthday on Wednesday, April 19, Manila Mayor Joseph “Erap” Estrada on Monday announced a new round of salary increase for city hall employees.

Estrada broke the good news during this morning’s flag ceremony at the city hall, earning applause from the thousands of rank-and-file workers and career officials.

“I’ve seen your hard work and dedication,” Estrada told the employees, “so as my gift to you, you will receive another increase in your monthly pay.”

Each employee’s monthly pay will be increased by about 10 percent.

Since becoming mayor in 2013, former president Estrada has said that it’s been one of his “birthday wishes” to uplift the lives of city hall employees especially with the rising cost of living and school expenses of their children and dependents.

The across-the-board increase in the regular employees’ monthly pay would be retroactive to January 1, 2017, according to city personnel office chief Miguelita Alonzo.

The city government has allocated P250 million for the salary adjustments of 8,830 regular employees based on the regulations set by the Department of Budget and Management (DBM).
