Taas presyo ng bilihin, serbisyo, kapit na!

TAPOS na ang ating maliligayang araw. Tapos na ang Christmas parties, reunions at mga kainan at handaan. Back to reality na tayo.

First two weeks pa lang ng 2019, sinalubong na agad tayo ng increases in prices of fuel and LPG in the light of the implementation of second round of excise tax on fuel of the Tax Reform for Acceleration and Inclusion
Law 2.

Because of these increases, expect na natin within nmext few days na magtataasan na rin ang presyo ng tinapay, bigas, isda, gulay, karne at mga condiments gaya ng toyo, suka, patis, asukal at vetsin. Asahan din na tataas pa ang singil sa kuryente, tubig,remittance fee, government documents.

Bukod sa tax ng TRAIN 2, prices will go up because of profiteering o pagsasamantala ng mga negosyante na taasan ang presyo ng kanilang mga paninda (kahit hindi naman dapat taasan), hoarding (bigas, asukal, gasolina). Prices will further go up on top of TRAIN 2 prices due to increase in the prices of oil in the world market.

Para ma offset ang inflation, the government is extending conditional cash transfer dole out to the poorest of the poor from P2.5 million to P4 million. The government is also giving fuel subsidy to jeepney drivers. Aside from these, wala na.

So yung mga informal sector workers gaya ng mga vendors o mga tindero, kasama na rin ang mga minimum wage earners, mas lalong kawawa sa darating na “bagyo”. So, kumapit na tayo!
