Recently, President Rodrigo Duterte just signed an executive order mandating the increase of the combat pay of the members of the Philippine National Police and Armed Forces of the Philippines from P500 to P3, 000. But after this photo surfaced and quickly became viral in the social media, everyone can't help but ask if our doctors and nurses would also get a well-deserved benefit from the administration,
A netizen named "Kiko" posted a photo of a payslip showing that the wage of a nurse working 11 days totals only to a measly P2, 860. Given the nature of the job, we all agree that even working hours are extended everyday not to mention the number of patients a nurse had to attend to. According to sources, this was from a local hospital. Kiko captioned the post with ", “I’m sorry but *explicit word!* I was disgusted the moment I saw this. This is disrespectful to our profession. Nurses don’t deserve this”
Many netizens reacted and here are some of their reactions:
“Sh*t! That’s too much! The tax alone of a call center agent’s salary is higher than the nurses’ salary. That’s why even if I’m a registered nurse, I’m stuck here in the BPO industry.”
“It’s too low”
“My daily allowance for my class when studying to be a nurse is higher”
“Nurses are exposed on different kinds of sickness, risks of infections, hiv, heppa etc etc and all we get is 260 pesos a day, others doesn’t even have a salary, esp when you’re only a volunteer. WTF! No wonder nurses doesn’t last here in the Philippines!”
Meanwhile, the hospital involved is yet to issue their statement regarding the matter.
