Republic Act No. 6727 which currently governs the minimum wage policy in the Philippines mandates the setting of regional minimum wages thru the Regional Tripartite Wages and Productivity Boards to afford protection to the most vulnerable workers like the unorganized, unskilled workers and new entrants. Minimum Wage is the lowest wage rate fixed by law that an employer should pay his workers   -IRR-RA 6727

Anent the wage subsidies for MSMEs, we defer to DTI's inputs on the matter.
