. TUC warns bosses are ‘keeping holiday pay from 1.7 million workers’. UP to one in seven workers are missing out on their legal entitlement to paid holidays, partly because of “bad employers” breaking the law, according to a new study.
We are regular employees. But GMA has been calling us Talents. As Talents, we don’t have overtime pay, holiday pay, hazard pay or 13th month pay. We are required to work on holidays, and are not entitled to paid leaves. We don’t have SSS, Pag-IBIG, or Philhealth. We don’t have security of tenure. If we retire, we get nothing. If we die, we get nothing, even if we die on duty.
