WP-2019-07: Differentiation of Pay Scales Across Levels of TVET Qualifications in the Construction Industry

Based on the sample size of 34 company-establishments, the study finds that having an NC does not guarantee a premium in the pay of workers. It is noted in the results that craft and related workers, machine operators, and construction laborers, which comprised the majority of the employment in the sector, are paid based on the prevailing daily minimum wage in the regions. The problem stems from the fact that there is a lower uptake of requiring an NC qualification in the recruitment and selection of workers. Having a structured differentiation of pay across TVET qualifications in the industry is ideal for an education system that promotes alternative vocational education, especially for the Philippines, having a high incidence of youth unemployment and educational mismatch.
