President Rodrigo Duterte on Sunday gave a piece of advice to nurses looking to have a bigger salary.
KAMI learned that Duterte urged them to enter the police force instead of staying in their jobs.
According to the President, nurses only get around P8,000-P10,000 in some private hospitals.
So if they want their salaries to increase, nurses should think about becoming police officers instead.
“Enter the police force. The salary is higher.
“If you remain a nurse outside, you only get about eight, nine, ten [thousand pesos],” Duterte said in a taped speech.
Rodrigo Duterte is the 16th and incumbent President of the Philippines and the first from Mindanao to hold the office. He is also the oldest person to assume the Philippine presidency at age 71.
Recently, President Duterte delivered his 5th State of the Nation Address. Among the topics he discussed were COVID-19 response, the West Philippine Sea, education, and telecommunication companies. His SONA received mixed reactions, with some critics saying that he was not able to lay out a detailed plan in battling the pandemic.
He also heeded the call of healthcare workers for the government to provide more help in their battle against COVID-19. President Rodrigo Duterte did so by reverting several cities and provinces back to a modified enhanced community quarantine. The President also approved the hiring of more health care workers amid the pandemic and the addition of more benefits to COVID-19 frontliners.
