"The public hearing is called for to gather the general sentiments of the concerned stakeholders, which shall be taken into consideration when the board makes its decision later," said the RTWPB - Region VII. 

"The public hearing is part of the wage board's mandate to periodically review the minimum wages in the region and if warranted, to issue a wage order, adjusting the same," it furthered. 

The Central Visayas wage board said the public hearing is open to all interested parties, who are encouraged to pre-register through

It set the monthly minimum wage of the kasambahays in Central Visayas at P5,500.00 for those in chartered cities and first class municipalities; and P4,500.00 for other municipalities.
