Palace Spokesman Harry Roque is proposing for an adjustment in the salaries of nurses in the Philippines.

Roque made the comment after a recent study conducted by an information aggregator showed that Filipino registered nurses earn the least compared to their peers in the Southeast Asia region.

According to iPrice Group, experienced Filipino nurses only receive a monthly salary of P40,381 while nurses from Malaysia, Thailand, Singapore, Vietnam, and Indonesia earn at least P63,000.

“Pagdating sa mga nurses sa gobyerno, ang solusyon po diyan eh siguro baguhin ang classification ng nurses sa government salary standardization law ng mailagay ang mga frontliners natin sa mas mataas na salary grade,” Roque said during his virtual presser Thursday.

“Sa pribadong sektor naman, yan ay nade-determine ng malayang merkado. Ngayong maraming nurses ang gustong umalis, siguro naman yung mga pribadong ospital magbibigay rin ng mas mataas na sahod para engganyuhing manatili sa Pilipinas ang mga nurses,” he added.
