PWM incomes for workers without risking job loss

98.3% are already earning more than $1300 a month. PWM will be extended to all sectors.

With the PWM for the Lift and Escalator ready to phase in and the proposal for the Waste Management sector submitted, the number earning less than $1300 will be further reduced.

With sectorial benchmarks for sectors currently without a PWM, what WP wants to achieve with MW is already achieved through PWM, WIS and these other policy measures.

The law is clear on the deployment of FDWs.

But the reality is less clear as it is not always possible to draw a clear line between household chores arising from caregiving and household chores of other family members.
