Do you think increasing employees salary would put an end to corruption, specially on the government sector? This was a move of our government and already are applied to some sectors but not all, yet...What you think...

It's very clear that it's not benefiting every one. others couldn't let go of their greed.

This approach will not work, corrupt people in Government already has lots of money yet they still steal. I'm sure the increase would only be a drop in the bucket compared to what they earn illegally and would only cost tax payers more. Greed is like a bottomless pit.

@ARN4567 if at least most of us has jobs then no one will be poor. even if you keep on looking for a job but those companies just fail you just because they like it seems so unfair.

One should be paid a "living wage" and that should prevent corruption to an extent, but one needs rule of law to be enforced to punish the guilty too - siva

They complain of having a low salary, so they say they resolve to some illegal terms to add up their wages...and yes some are caught and are punished by law....I just hope increasing their wages would help to refrain them from bad things such as corruption...

Yes, it can help but not much. Some people are just simply spending beyond their limits and are insatiable. Once they have a higher salary they tend to increase their standard of living and sometimes go beyond their means.

Yes, they want more to the extent of doing it in illegal ways just to be satisfied materially, that is..."ang ibang tao nga naman"......

Its difficult to root out corruption once it gets in.. even if some want to stop the others around will force them to do it.. its an viscous cycle.

in my opinion the salary increase of employees will not end corruption ... because there are still many prominent figures of corruption who roam out there

It's doubtful, as anything involving money causes more corruption and greed.

Well, I think its a good move but I do not think it will solve the issue on corruption. There is always the concept of wanting more. Considering that the people holding positions in the key areas are still the same people, then corruption will continue. I think the only way to stop corruption is to change from the bottom not only from the top. Our president cannot monitor everyone.

Not all are working in the Government. Increasing the salary of some while taking us to ride to the Train is not helping us but rather a big burden to ordinary masses who are not part of their 4P's program.
