A similar announcement was made last year. According to the city government’s official website, Pasig was declared as the Visitacion Parish in July 2, 1573. The page claims that Visitacion is the first Marian Parish in the Philippines and perhaps in the entire Asia.

According to pay rules set by the Department of Labor and Employment, employees who choose not to work on special non-working holidays will not get any compensation unless there is “a favorable company policy, practice or collective bargaining agreement (CBA) granting payment of wages on special days even if unworked.”
