Idol talaga! Vico Sotto vows promotions for Pasig’s lowest paid workers

0 63

Vico Sotto is heaven sent for Pasig City’s poorest employees.

The millennial mayor is definitely a visionary and gamechanger for the lives of thousands of city hall employees, with his latest announcement giving an early reason for them to look forward to 2021. Come January, 4,339 casual employees will get a salary boost of P2,000 a month, where their base pay would now be P13,572.

This was Sotto’s battlecry: “Dignidad at seguridad lalo na para sa mga ‘mababa’ ang posisyon o sahod.”

“Mahaba at madugo ang proseso ng pagpapataas ng antas ng serbisyo ng lokal na pamahalaan. Giving our workers dignity and security is an important part of this,” he added.

The politiko is not stopping there, as he vowed to pull up all other city workers from the lowest salary bracket and to regularize many other casual workers hired by the city hall.

The ultimate target: “Nakangiti at walang nakasimangot na kawani ng gobyerno… One step at a time, kaya natin ‘to.”
