PH government dishes out bad news: Government employees will not get salary increases in 2014
We’re sure government workers are thanking you for telling them straight.
ABS-CBN News correspondent RG Cruz reports that Department of Budget and Management Secretary Butch Abad "has ruled out a salary increase for government employees next year."
The report quoted Abad, who said, "We just finished 4 phases of [Salary Standardization Law] SSL3. And right now, as you will note, a provision for increases is not provided in 2014. We need time to assess and get into the effect and study impact and determine if another round is needed because it will entail a huge amount of money and personnel services already constitute huge chunk of budget."
Bottom line: There will be no salary increase for goverment workers in 2014.
