In the Philippines, the minimum daily wage ranges from P 250 to P 481, depending on the location. This amount is subject to tax and other mandatory deductions (SSS, Philhealth, etc.). With very low salary ranges, it’s no wonder why millions of Filipinos choose to work abroad where the pay is better to provide for their families.
