In my opinion, laborers are not compensated enough in their work because the Just Wage in our country is not enough and set at very low. What is your opinion about it?

Well expenses now a days are becoming higher so i guess so must be the wages. To make it balance, possibility when expense is higher than wage is a negative effect. Imagine when you only got P100 and the merchandise cost P120, then no choice but to have it credit or not to buy anymore.

For me, just wage is not enough. They should try to increase the wages of common laborers. As of now, basic necessities are getting expensive while the wage is not moving. Thus resulting to a greater chance of poverty in our country. More are becoming poor for they could not sustain the things they need in order to be able to survive.=)

Nope...because if peoples would be contended on the Just Fair Rate, why would they still want to go out of the country to look for work?

we never had just compensations i believe. except for those people who have high education. not necessarily finished college. but they even spent more time to get masterals or doctorates. but so much for these upgrading. secondly, i think where to get a just compensation is if you can work in an international BPO company. at least these companies offer more than the minimum wage for a professional. and i don't understand why even the government cannot offer good wage package. it cannot even surpass the offered salary from a private company.
