Sen Franklin Drilon
The widespread hunger and poverty in the country is persisting. It is being made worse by the non-stop increase in the prices of petroleum products, which is further increasing the prices of basic goods and services. Workers and poor people need a significant wage hike, such as the P125 across-the-board wage increase nationwide which workers have been clamoring for.
Labor center Kilusang Mayo Uno slammed Sen. Franklin Drilon today for opposing the legislation of a wage hike, saying the senator is in effect agreeing with meager wage hikes and shutting doors to a significant wage increase.
