Kapit na, inflation rate tataas pa!

By: - 10/08/2018

BASED on our observation, the inflation rate have reached this high because our economic managers have no real plan kung paano sosolusyunan ang walang humpay na pagtaas ng mga bilihin at serbisyo.

Be that as it may, we see no indication that this growing poverty will cease. Wala nga kasing mga strategies na ginagawa, specifically designed for this purpose.
Nitong Biyernes, napabalita na tumaas ang presyo ng mga bilihin, aprtikular na ang bigas at maging ang mga sin products gaya ng sigarilyo at alak, na siya namang naging dahilan kung bakit sumipa ang inflation ng bansa —pinakamataas sa huling siyam na taon.
Umabot sa 6.4 percent year-on-year ang inflation at sinasabing tataas pa bago matapos ang taon.
Samantala, our people are now going hungry and have no more money in their pockets.
Kahit pa bahain ng gobyerno ang mga merkado ng mga imported na bigas at gulay, e, kung wala namang pera na ipambibili ang mamamayan, walang saysay rin iyon.
So nararapat na aprubahan na ang P500 peso monthly cash subsidy from government for 4 million minimum wage earners under SSS coverage.

Ito ay ang Labor Empowerment and Assistance Program (LEAP) and is intended to mitigate the economic miscalculations of TRAIN 1, the knock-on depreciation of the peso in the light of the US increase in its interest rates, and the on-going increase in international oil prices.

There is a critical need to bridge the gap in the decline of real wages as inflation climbs.
With this, kaila-ngan din ng substantive wage adjustment by the regional wage boards to compensate workers for the productivity gains they have brought to the economy, at para na rin sa pagtitiyaga nila sa paghihintay na aabot sa kanila ang sinasabing pag-unlad ng ekonomiya. This will help improve working force’s buying power!

Meanwhile, I advise you to be resilient. Kaya nga mga kaibigan, mga kasama sa working force, kapit na dahil lalo pang tataas ang presyo ng mga bilihin!
