Senator Bam Aquino Proposes One-Time 14th And 15th Months Pay

MANILA, Philippines (The Adobo Chronicles, Manila Bureau) – In preparation for the start of the campaign period for next year’s national and local elections, Senator Bam Aquino has urged Congress to pass a bill granting employees a one-time only 14th and 15th months pay.

Many will recall that proposals for a 14th month pay have been pending in both the House of Representatives and the Senate.

Aquino’s proposal will combine a 14th and 15th month pay for all employees, payable before the May 2019 elections.  It will not be an annual payout.

Aquino told The Adobo Chronicles that his proposal will encourage Filipinos to vote for incumbent legislators who are seeking reelection. Like himself.

Quite a campaign strategy, we’d say!
