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

  1. 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!..

    1. 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

      2. For me it is good for twice a month salary because we can control in spending our money as well as the duration of waiting for our salary is not quite long – every two weeks.

      1. Iam not interested with the policy I totally reject the twice a month salary hindi nakakatulong sa mga guro kundi dagdag problema sa amin.

        If you have 5k only what happen to it if they split ? What can a teacher buy from 250 and yet she has loans to pay from outside lending inst.?

      1. If you don’t want to withdraw on the 15th because it is a waste of time, then you can withdraw your money in the 30th day, you have your option naman.

        1. How about those who have obligations on the 25th to 29th of the month as most banks and lending institutions do, how can you pay your obligations since when we made our loan/s it is us who select the date of payment, since in our division we received our salary on the 22nd of the month, so we choose the date when to settle our obligations. Now with these twice a month scheme, we are place in a limbo onhow to settle our obligations. Just telling you coz I know your are not in financial hiatos. Todo Lang bagon.

  2. How could they thought of dividing a small amount of salary, it doesn’t make sense at all. This proposal is a cheap way of thinking on how to help teachers or maybe its how they see teachers. Will anyway since it was already approved, the advantage then is DepEd need to employ people on Payroll and Accounts. Why? Because the work of these people on Payrolls and Accounts have doubled, trabaho nga naman ginawa nila for employment. Good job kung sino man nakaisip nito! πŸ‘

  3. I also disagree wd the proposal. A waste of time, money and effort. What is needed is salary increase not twice a month release. My net pay is only 6k.

  4. Please consider those in favor for this twice a month salary. Maliit din po ang net ko. Pwede naman pong huwag munang iwithdraw ang una. Pwedi namang end of the month nalang nila i withdraw kung ayaw nilang makaltasan sa ATM twice.
    If in case may emergency before end of the month may makukuha ka ng hindi na kailangan mang utang na may tubo sa huli πŸ˜₯πŸ˜₯
