WTF?!

I got this from the email, and my initial reaction – why the hell did you make the proclamation in the first place?

_____



TO             :  ALL EMPLOYERS IN THE PRIVATE SECTOR

SUBJECT     :   PROCLAMATION NO. 532 DECLARING JANUARY 22, 2004

                      A SPECIAL WORKING HOLIDAY THROUGHOUT THE COUNTRY

                      FOR THE OBSERVANCE OF THE BEGINNING OF A NEW YEAR

                      ACCORDING TO THE CHINESE LUNAR CALENDAR

Under Proclamation No. 532 dated 12 January 2004, President Gloria Macapagal-Arroyo declared January 22, 2004 a special working day throughout the country for the observance of the beginning of a new year according to the Chinese lunar calendar.

Accordingly, the following guidelines shall be observed:

For work performed on special working holidays, the employees are entitled only to their basic rate. No premium pay is required since work performed on said day is considered work on ordinary working days.

Done in the City of Manila, Philippines, this 20th day of January 2004.
