Pinoy Nurses to Get Equal Wages with Japanese Counterparts

The Japanese government is drafting a guideline creating a wage scheme for Filipino nurses and caregivers under the Japan-Philippine Economic Partnership Agreement (JPEPA) providing for a uniform wage equal to what Japanese nurses are currently receiving.

The guideline is intended to prevent Filipino healthcare providers from having to work under unfair labor conditions in Japanese hospitals and nursing homes.

Under the guideline, Filipino nurses and caregivers are prohibited from rendering home-care services as it would be difficult for the japanese government to monitor their working conditions.

Japan-Philippine Economic Partnership Agreement (JPEPA) was signed in Helsinki, Finland by Japanese Prime Minister Junichiro Koizumi and Philippine President Gloria Macapagal-Arroyo last September 2006.
