Philippines seeks to cut hours of ‘stressed’ staff

Philippines seeks to cut hours of ‘stressed’ staff

Politicians in the Philippines are proposing to cut the working hours of teachers from eight hours a day to six. Teachers’ current schedule has left them “stressed out and exhausted, much to the detriment of our students”, a bill filed to the country’s congress says. Work carried out beyond the six-hour limit should be rewarded with additional compensation of at least 25 per cent of regular pay, the bill continues. Teachers in the Philippines are currently bound by a law that says government workers must put in eight-hour shifts.  from The TES .
