      Yun din ang tanong namin. Basta na lang kami sinabihan na 5k lang. Hindi namin alam saan ang 5k na dapat sa amin din. Hahay The government will really screw you. Kapirangot ang sweldo and you work hard and you stay honest tapos gagaguhin ka lang. Time to crawl out of this pit. Yung mga iba siguro na nakatanggap ng full amount yun siguro ang mga nasa inner circle nila. Unfair nga pero ganun siguro talaga ang laro nila.

        As far as I know nka allocate na yan,kay gloria nga, khit 7k meron, kc ang 3 k will shoulder by the respective govt agencies. Pero 5k for the year is really unfair,,, I dont think this is fair enough, pnp employees ako, and came from luzon area, mga kakilala ko from mindanao got their bonus amounting to 15k, I think this is cruel, we are in the same agency (crame) pero not in the same amount? Sounds ironic right? As far as bonus is concern, i heard some gossip na, dhil s bagyong pablo thats why maliit dw ngyon?
        Ndi q alm how can we fight for this right na it shldnt be posted in the news paper or in the web of pnp na magrerelease ang govt ng bonuses for the employees and yet iba nmn ang nkuha nmin. We are really expected more than 10k because of the new implemented incentive. I thought this will be 10k for the pnoy bonus and 5k for the cash bonus. Even if they will not give the said cash bonus, sna man lng yong dti nlng na 10k bonus that was being issued kc yan na expected not only pnp but also lahat ng govt employees. Once a year lng nmn,,, disappointed pa mga tao,,,tsk,,,tsk,,,as if ndi buwis buhay ang work nmin.

          Naku ang lala pala ng sa inyo. Nakakainis di ba? Lalo na you work the whole year na walang reklamo. Pinagsisisihan ko talaga na binoto ko si P-Noy. Parang hindi ko maintindihan bakit biglang wala. Mas nagsisi ako na I was st*p*d enough to remain in government service kahit sobrang parang basura na ang trato sa empleyado. Akala ko kasi tuwid na daan. Malas ko lang nauto ako. Hahay. Buhay.

    Sa tuwing darating ang kapaskuhan
    Ang Christmas bonus, ating inaasahan
    Sa mga ahensiya ng gobyernong pinagta-trabahuan

    Kaya't ibigay n'yo na
    Ang aming Christmas bonus
    Nang maging maligaya tayong lahat
    Sa araw ng pasko
    (Contractual employee of govt is a victim of injustice. We are still seeking of RIGHT TREATMENT and JUSTICE to government. We the contractual, working a lot, inspired to work coz we could receive a PNoy PEI. But we are so sad inaasahan man namin yung 10K.. Some are feel hilarious but some are feel TERRIBLE SAD dahil ala kaming 10K. Sana hiling lang namin na magkaroon ng JUSTICE sa pagbibigay ng 10K hwag nyo naman kaming paasahin sa wala. BE Fair NOt BE UNFair.)

    10,000 bonus for a whole year of work (or PhP 833/mo not even a thousand per month!) is not even enough people! The purpose of the incentive is for the government workers to perform better! because we all know their public image is well as they say slackers and redundant. Why so much hate for the 10,000 pesos which was earned for a year? I just pity those teachers, nurses, soldiers who really work their asses out but just because of the PEI where belittled by other people. Maybe if you are really pissed off because of this PEI try working for the government and see for yourself how these people have earned their PEI!

    Most government workers are... redundant! Let's face the fact that our government is already running on a fiscal deficit with most of its revenue generating units already performing way below standards! In for profit, private companies- no one gets a bonus unless the whole d-mn company is doing well.

    I felt bitterness from the last two comments below... the PEI is not a privilege. Many private sector corporations have used incentive programs to improve processes and outcomes so why not to government wherein the whole country can benefit from.
    @ jepong Since income tax in the Philippines is a progressive tax (meaning people with higher incomes pay more than people with lower incomes) i assume you are earning a lot because you claimed your deduction was "napakalaki". While government employees (who are also tax payers) are living paycheck to paycheck because of their measly income.
    @ mike Why be so judgmental? Most government workers are hard workers generalizing and calling them inefficient and criminal (these are people with high government position, rarely for those rank and file employees) is unfair. Also, it is never pathetic to reward someone of their whole year of hard work.

    What is this pathetic Xmas lolly scramble for public servants we taxpayers are forced to endure every year? They should get a 13th month pay like everyone else and be done with. Why on earth should some of the most inefficient and often times, criminal, workers in the country get bestowed special salary priveleges every year? Its pathetic that politicians feel they have to brown nose up to these people just to try and get them to do their jobs.
