Mayor Vico Sotto said he doubled the salaries of Pasig City's 314 barangay health workers in recognition of their work that has become more important during the COVID-19 pandemic.
The monthly pay of the Pasig Health Aides will be increased to P12,000 from P5,000. Retirees will also receive a "separation pay" of P10,000 per year of service, Sotto said.
"The barangay health centers and its staff are key here. Our health center personnel have a heavy duty, and their responsibilities will be increased. So they shouldn't be underpaid," he said.
