minimum wage law

Post by isabelo c. rodriguez on Tue May 15, 2012 1:49 am

hi everyone! i woull like to ask: is it true that the minimum wage law does not apply to infra/construction workers? some are of the opinion that indeed infra workers are not covered due to the "pakyaw" system employed by some contractors and this law is only applicable to security guards, janitors, etc.. in one of our bidding for infra, two contractors were post-disqualified due to non-compliance with this provision and one of them insisted that such law does not cover construction workers. is he correct?

If you conducted public bidding for infra, the contractors which bidded for the project will certainly be covered. They are required to submit an omnibus sworn statement and one of the items in that statement is that the contractor is certifying that it is complying with labor laws and standards. Of course, a certification of compliance to labor laws would also mean that the contractor is complying with the minimum wage law.
