Noynoy's First Paycheck as Philippines' CEO
Image via WikipediaWe all take a close look at our personal salaries, earnings or allowances. And admit it or not many of us always complain about it. Here are some common complaints.
It's too small!
It's not enough for me and my family.
How can I budget this?
I worked hard for this?
How can I possibly live with this amount?
The tax is too big!
The list is definitely longer than this. Yes, salary is one of the hottest and most controversial human inventions and it has always been like that since the beginning.
Now, let's shift our focus to the latest topic in the world of Pinoy money. Early this evening, we saw in the news, a picture of a powerful man holding his first paycheck. This powerful man is none other than our very own President Benigno 'Noynoy' Aquino Jr. How much did he earn on first month of being employed as the chief executive of the Philippines? As we saw in the news, he got a net salary amounting to 63, 000 pesos. His gross salary is just above 100, 000 pesos and as some of us already know, this is significantly higher compared to his predecessor (thanks to the previous president for passing an Executive order increasing the salary of public officials).
Now, is that big or small? If you will be hired to his position, will you accept the job?
Just a funny thought from a simple blogger! You may or you may not take this seriously :-)
