Vico Sotto Promotes 4,339 Employees, Increases Their Salaries
In an early Christmas surprise, Pasig Mayor Vico Sotto has just mass promoted 4,339 employees of the Pasig City government. With the promotion comes a decent increase in their paychecks, from P11,551 to P13,572 per month, or a P2,021 increase in their salaries. Multiplied by 4,339 employees, that translates to a cost to the Pasig City government almost P9 million monthly.
"Dignidad at at seguridad, lalo na para sa mga mababa ang posisyon o sahod," Sotto wrote on his Facebook page.
The promotion and salary increase will be effective on January 1, 2021.
