Did you know? BARANGAY CAPTAINS receive around PHP1,198 per day

ANC 24/7 posted, on Facebook: "This is how much your barangay chairperson can earn in exchange for his services. #Halalan2018"

In 2012: These functions cut across the executive, legislative and judicial branches of government and they are performed by the barangay councils whose members—barangay captains and councilors, barangay secretaries, treasurers and Sangguniang Kabataan (SK) chairs—have been, from the very beginning, the least paid within the local government service. From P1,000 per month for barangay captains and P600 for council members, secretaries, treasurers and SK chairs, the compensation has been raised to Salary Grade 14 for the barangay head and Salary Grade 10 for the rest. Payments at these new rates, however, are subject to the availability of funds. But even at the current salary levels, the barangay officials remain grossly underpaid compared to their municipal and city counterparts, whose functions are circumscribed within the executive, legislative and judicial branches of government.
