Dear Archilles Parallon,


Thank you for your request dated Jun 10, 2022 11:32:59 AM under Executive Order No. 2 (s. 2016) on Freedom of Information in the Executive Branch.

Your Request

You asked for minimum and average wages, 1990 to 2022.

Response to Request

Dear Mr. Parallon,

We do not have data on national and real national minimum wage for the period covered because Republic Act No. 6727 or the Wage Rationalization Act does not provide for the implementation of a national minimum wage.

As to your request for average wage, may we inform you that the Philippine Statistics Authority generates such as part of their labor statistics. You may find some tables in this link: 

We are glad to be of service to you! To help us evaluate and improve our services, may we request that you answer the questions in the form provided in the Link below. 

Rest assured that all personal data collected will be secured and kept confidential in accordance to the Data Privacy Act of 2012.
