Employers offer P20 minimum wage hike

An employers group finds "acceptable" a P20 increase in daily minimum wage for workers in Metro Manila, an amount that is way below the P344 that a labor group is seeking to allow them to recover lost purchasing power.   The Employers Confederation of the Philippines (Ecop) cautioned against a significant pay increase, saying it would further jack up prices of goods and result in the closure of several businesses and loss of jobs for thousands.   Ecop made known its stand during the second consultation meeting conducted on Wednesday by the Regional Tripartite Wage and Productivity Board, which is hearing the petition for the P344 wage increase filed by the Associate...Keep on reading: Employers offer P20 minimum wage hike.....»»

Dutch humiliate Germany in Nations League, Gibraltar wins

By The Associated Press Germany's UEFA Nations League campaign took a humiliating blow after a 3-0 loss at old rival Netherlands on Saturday. Germany remains without a win in the top-tier League A and has yet to score a goal. In the second-tier League B, the Czech Republic got its first win in the new competition — beating host Slovakia 2-1 — and Ireland and Denmark drew 0-0. In League D, Gibraltar won its first competitive game on a memorable night for the tiny territory. Here's a look at Saturday's games. NO GOALS FOR GERMANY Following its disastrous World Cup defense in Russia, Germany has been under pressure to show some progress but it didn't come at the Johan Cruyff Arena on Saturday night. The Germans failed to score for the third straight competitive game, including a humiliating 2-0 loss to South Korea in Russia and a 0-0 draw with France at home in the Nations League. Captain Virgil van Dijk scored only his second international goal before Memphis Depay and Georginio Wijnaldum added two more as the Dutch ran riot late in the game. The comprehensive defeat left Germany at the bottom of Group 1 with a single point, days before it heads to Paris to take on group leader and World Cup champion France. France leads the Dutch by a point at the top of the standings. The result also heaped more pressure on Germany coach Joachim Loew, who opted to stay in the job after the 2014 world champion crashed out of the summer's World Cup in Russia at the group stage. "Why are we not scoring? That's difficult to answer, we have clear chances," Loew said. "Had we lost 1-0, it would have been acceptable but breaking apart like this in the last 10 minutes is not good." Germany's scoring woes were personified by Loew's decision to play Mark Uth as a lone striker despite the 27-year-old Schalke player failing to score a goal this season. Uth didn't impress and was substituted in the second half. A corner from the right by Depay exposed German defensive frailties in the 30th. Ryan Babel rose between Jonas Hector and Mats Hummels to head against the underside of the bar and the ball bounced up invitingly for the unmarked Van Dijk to head in. Depay doubled the lead in the 87th, calmly finishing after a quick break down the right by substitute Quincy Promes. The Olympique Lyon striker then hit the crossbar in extra time before Liverpool midfielder Georginio Wijnaldum made it 3-0 with virtually the last kick of the match as Germany crumbled. CZECHS WIN Substitute striker Patrik Schick scored the winning goal for the visiting Czech Republic to beat Slovakia 2-1 in Trnava. All the goals were in the second half. Three minutes after coming off the bench, Schick rose in the area in the 76th minute to head in a cross from captain Borek Dockal for his second goal in two matches. It was the first win for the Czechs in the competition after losing to Ukraine. Ukraine leads Group 1 in second-tier League B, with three more points than the Czechs. Slovakia remains pointless. Playmaker Marek Hamsik marked his record 108th appearance for Slovakia with his 22nd goal, a rebound after a corner, after Czech striker Michael Krmencik scored the opener following a through ball from Dockal. Ireland drew with Denmark in Group 4 in the only other game in League B later Saturday. Denmark tops the group with four points, one more than Wales in second. Ireland has one point. BULGARIA LEADS Ole Selnaes scored the only goal for Norway to beat Slovenia 1-0 in Group 3 of League C for its second win and trail leader Bulgaria by three points. Bulgaria rallied from a goal down to beat Cyprus 2-1. Cyprus has three points while Slovenia is on zero. GIBRALTAR ENDS LOSING STREAK Gibraltar's national team has recorded its first victory in a competitive match, a 1-0 win at Armenia, after losing its previous 22 competitive games. Joseph Chipolina got the historic winner from the penalty spot in the Group 4 game in League D. Gibraltar players had to listen to the national anthem of Liechtenstein before the match, a mistake for which Armenia FA apologized. Gibraltar hosts Liechtenstein on Tuesday. Macedonia kept a perfect record in the same group with a 4-1 victory over Lichtenstein to lead with nine points. The other three teams are tied on three points. In Group 1 of League D, Georgia made it three wins in three by beating Andorra 3-0 to dominate the standings with nine points. Andorra, Latvia and Kazakhstan all have two points after Latvia and Kazakhstan drew 1-1......»»

FIBA WORLD CUP ASIAN QUALIFIERS: Gilas Pilipinas dominates Taipei to set up Australia rematch

First-quarter woes continue to haunt Gilas Pilipinas but time and time again, the Philippines is finding ways to recover and win in the end. This time the victory was convincing as Gilas Pilipinas masterfully beat Chinese Taipei on the road, scoring a 93-71 decision Friday at the Taipei Heping Gymnasium for the third window of the 2019 FIBA World Cup Asian Qualifiers. The Philippines got off to a slow start anew and was down by as many as nine in the opening period. But with Jayson Castro and Andray Blatche at the lead, Gilas managed to settle down quickly and kept things close until the second quarter. Just before the end of the first half, the Philippines unloaded a telling 11-1 run to finally take over. Gilas was never truly threatened after that. June Mar Fajardo dominated the second half, scoring 11 points in the third as the Philippines slowly pulled away. Taipei kept things manageable heading to the fourth but Gilas finally dropped the hammer, taking the fight out of the hosts with a 25-11 bomb to win by 22 points, easily the best win for the national team in these Asian Qualifiers. "Well I think it was just due to some good preps," head coach Chot Reyes said. "Coming into this ball game we knew Chinsse Taipei will start strong. We just stayed with our game plan, our second unit played well," he added. Fajardo scored 22 points, his new FIBA career high, to lead Gilas in scoring while Jayson Castro added 15 points. Terrence Romeo came off the bench and added 14 points while Blatche had 13 points, 12 reboubds, five assists, three steals, and two blocks for a nice all-around performance. The win pushed Gilas to a 4-1 record, setting up the highly-anticipated rematch against Australia Monday at the Philippine Arena. With the Boomers taking a shock 78-79 loss to Japan on the road, the Philippines-Australia rematch will be for first place in Group B. Meanwhile, Taipei (1-4) and Japan (1-4) will square off to decide who moves on to the second round. For Taipei, Quincy Davis scored 17 points to lead the hosts.   The scores: Gilas Pilipinas (93) - Fajardo 22, Castro 15, Romeo 14, Blatche 13, Norwood 8, Wright 6, Rosario 5, Jalalon 2, Pogoy 0, Aguilar 0, Abueva 0, Malicsi 0. Chinese Taipei (71) - Davis 17, Lu 13, Chen Y. 11, Chou Y. 9, Chen K. 9, Yang 7, Tseng 3, Chou P. 2, Liu 0, Chiang 0, Su 0, Creighton 0. Quarters: 16-19, 44-37, 68-60, 93-71.   --- Follow this writer on Twitter, @paullintag8.....»»
