Story at: Aquino to receive DBM recommendation for gov’t workers’ pay hike—Drilon
This move of the administration may perhaps be good, but if only they have also considered and not dis-prioritized the lowly senior citizens SSS pensioners who are merely receiving P1,200/month pension which is far below the cost of living. If you were in the shoes of an SSS pensioner, what would you feel about this increase in salary of government workers?
Are the SSS pensioners low class people such that they are least in the priority of this current administration? After the vetoed pension increase, what has the administration done to help them? Where is our sense of social justice here? What happened to our value of preferential option for the least of our bretheren?
