About 3,000 casual and regular employees of the Misamis Oriental provincial government would receive their mid-year bonus this week, Governor Yevgeny Vincente Emano.

Emano said that the mid-year bonus is equivalent to one month salary, which the provincial government usually releases in May as the enrollment for the school year approaches.

He said the mid-year bonus could help the parents in enrolling and acquiring the important school items for their children for the coming school year.

Emano said that aside from the mid-year bonus, provincial capitol employees are also entitled to the 13th month pay given every end of the year.

Michael Beja and Dexter Pillo, both provincial capitol employee, said they were glad of the governor’s announcement, saying the mid-year bonus “is the only way they could pay the tuition fee” for the new school year. (NRM/PNA)
