Labor group lauds gov't officials for salary donation
A labor group lauded the decision of the majority of Cabinet officials to donate 75 percent of their salaries as additional funds to contain coronavirus disease 2019 (Covid-19).
Sonny Matula, Federation of Free Workers (FFW) president, said they appreciate the efforts of top government officials as they are also hoping that other officials will follow suit.
“The Federation of Free Workers welcomes with high appreciation the announcement that majority of the Cabinet members have volunteered to take 75 percent monthly pay cuts to help the government contain the Covid-19 outbreak, he said in a statement.
Matula said they learned that Senator Sonny Angara also committed to doing the same.
“Their generosity will surely be remembered by a grateful nation,” he added.
Cabinet Secretary Karlo Nograles earlier announced that members of the Cabinet, including himself, will donate 75 percent of their monthly salaries during the effectivity of the Bayanihan to Heal as One Act.
He did not give the names of the other government officials, as he would like them to identify themselves.
