Top 5 reasons why teachers are negative about the twice a month salary release

The move for twice a month salary release for teachers is now approved by the secretary of education. Different comments and opinions from teachers all over the country arise. This will be for all DepEd personnel including teachers.

Here are the Top 5 Reasons Why Teachers are Negative about the Twice A Month Salary Release:

1. It Doesn’t Make A Difference!

The salary amount is still the same and it does not make a difference at all.

2. Total Waste of Time and Effort for the Payroll Makers as Well as Teachers

For the payroll makers, it will be an addition to their job since they will adjust to release it twice every month. For teachers, it is a total waste of time to go to the banks or ATMs twice per month. Not to mention is the charge from the withdrawal.

3. Only Applicable for the Master Teachers and Principals and Higher Supervisors

Only those with high salary will be happy about this. This will be applicable for the Master Teachers, Principals, District Supervisors and Heads. For Teacher1 to Teacher 3, this is a total nightmare.

4. Extra Charge from the Banks Upon ATM Withdrawal

The banks will be happy about this news. They can charge for the withdrawal twice a month as well. Imagine how big they can accumulate if all teachers will withdraw from other banks? There is no choice especially for those who are from far away places. Most of the time only selected ATMs are available in town.

5. Will be Bothersome to Teachers with the Lowest Net Pay

Most teachers nowadays have net pays lower than 6k. It means their net pay will also be into two having 2,500 per quincena as the net. No wonder teachers are negative about this transition.

On the other side of the boat, there are also teachers who are positive about this. Form the 100%, there is 5% of teachers who are positive on this change. Those who are not having financial struggles are the ones who like the idea.

The twice a month salary release will be effective on January 2022. Teachers above all are still hoping for their increase not being on staggered basis. The increase they are voicing out long time ago that they needed and deserve. – Clea | Helpline PH

    Please initiate a signature campaign for teachers to suspend the implementation!…This is a somewhat irrational idea, maybe without consulting the voices of teachers!… Maybe its the bankers whom the DepEd leadership consulted about this matter!..

      Yes,as a teacher i woul like oppose for twice a month of salary because my net pay is baseline..
      So,i rather suggest that you have to increase our salary to make it double so that we can cope up our necessities..

      1. The increase of salary for me as a teacher 1 is what I am longing for , not for the twice a month salary release because it is only good for those you have already promoted to higher rank. As a teacher 1 for almost 15 years and a widow with 3 children and only my salary can help me and my children for everyday living especially for their education

        Correct Sir! I don’t agree also with the twice a month salary. It is just a waste of time .

      3. Im not favor of this , because, only banks with atm will be benifitted on this. Our salary is now lower than 6 thousand, it is a waste of time going to atm
