    4. May point si ping, babae ako, pero I know OA yung mga nang bash s kanya, I KNOW HOW IT FEELS! Pero if I’m running a bussiness eh di puro boys na lang kukunin ko kasi mas efficient na sila lumalabas kesa sa babae.

    5. This actually send women back.. An interview here in UK was done with business men and company owners. They were ask if two applicants for the same position with the same qualifications, which would you hire, a male or female. All answered male as they business wise, they will get the same job done without dealing with monthly leave and pay for not being at work. This may be applicable if you are medically signed to have extreme pain and bleeding. Otherwise, it is viewed again as deterrent for women applying for job and raise. I am a woman and having bad periods due to growth in my ovaries but I do not like this bill.

    6. Babae ako at lahi namin May dysmenorrhea pero parang OA na ito, pwede naman mag sick leave, aabusuhin to ng mga babaeng tamad, ano? Show proof na may regla ka sa work? Papakita mo pads mo? Kaloka!

    7. those countries can afford them. sa ibang bansa, yung binabayad sa leaves in-earn na yan ng employee, nabawas na yan sa sahod bukod sa tax. where i am at kapag sick leave from day 2 govt na nagbabayad sa kin. do we really think kaya yan sa pilipinas?

    8. This bill discriminates against males. I'm a female, and I don't agree with Ping's proposed law. If menstruation cramp is so severe and debilitating, the female worker can call-in sick.

      Delete
    9. 1:21, it is not being feminist. Mahirap talaga ang magauffer from dysmenorrhea. Eversince I started my menstruation I suffered from dysmenorrhea and I still do until now even after having 3 kids.

      Truth be told, I would rather work than be on leave and suffer from dysmenorrhea. Hindi lang cramps nararamdaman mo, may kasama pang headache and diarrhea.

      1:09. it wouldn’t be fair nga naman to charge it to sick leave. Pareho lang naman ang dami ng sick leave ng babae at lalaki and yet at a disadvantage ang babae. Take my case for instance, imagine every month nagkaka-dysmenorrhea ka so that’s 12 days agad tapos you are left with 3 days, so kung nagka-flu ka or worse, nagka Covid, kulang pa ang sick leave mo na kung tutuusin, hindi mo naman kasalanan na naubos ang 12 days mo.

    10. This is absolutely ridiculous!! A “menstrual leave”?!..what’s next? LBM leave?πŸ™„

    11. Advance na po ang medicines at healthcare, may pain killers for that na. Manageable na po siya, in all forms. Kung ayaw mong uminom ng gamot, choice mo yun. Take a sick leave.

      Imagine having female employees na pwedeng mawala ng 2-5 days dahil dinudugo, on top of regular sick days. Good luck naman at baka mag-hire na lang ang mga companies ng mga lalake. And wag tayong paka-plastic ha? It happens!

    12. For sure ang employer di na tatanggap ng female employee hanggat may choice.Buwan buwan mahirap e cover yung leave ah.

    4. 1) Where did you get 4 days, based ba sa period cycle mo? The bill states "up to two days". Pwedeng I-Google.

      2) At dahil mago-Google ka na din, isabay mo na ang pagresearch ng mga ibang bansa na mayroong pinapatupad na menstrual leaves. It's not an outrageous concept; even a workaholic country like Korea practices it.

      3) Babae din ako, and I suffer from menorrhagia. There are times when I have non-stop heavy bleeding for weeks, binigyan na ako ng iron supplements nang hindi ako maging anemic and reseta for tranexamic acid to finally stop the bleeding dahil hindi kaya ng katawan ko to do it. Although it can be hard, my condition does not stop me from working. So it would be nice if people can start being more considerate to other women, to think hindi pa tapos ang Women's Month.

      4) Siguro nga may mga employers na magkakaroon ng bias, at meron ding mga empleyado na mamimihasa. But that is up to them. Why should a few bad apples spoil the bunch, eh marami pa din naman sa atin ang maayos ang work ethics?

    5. The Spanish parliament approved the creation of a sick leave for women suffering from incapacitating periods, becoming the first country in Europe to do so.

Sobra na din nipis ng hair ko kase very anemic na ako. It’s just a cycle. Sandali lang ok pakiramdam ko after blood transfusion. After the heavy painful flow, ayan na naman.

    13. Hindi niyo alam ano magiging cause nito? More women will not get jobs. Sinong employer ang gugustuhin mag employ ng kababaihan na laging may sick leave or menstrual leave every month? Tapos ano? Magdedemand kayo ng equal pay sa mga lalaki na walang ganyang leave at mas mahaba kung magstay sa work. What a joke.

    15. 11:50 girl, try mo magkaroon ng bukol sa matres at masakit sobra ang period every month, ewan ko lang kung makapasok ka. Merong mga nahihimatay sa ganyan at maraming sinasalinan ng dugo. Ganun kalala. pasalamat ka kung hindi mo nararanasan yan so don't question something if hindi mo nararanasan. Others need it badly.

    12. Ang maternity leave, napaplano ang cover well in advance.

      How do I justify paying the same across men and women of the same rank and position pero yung lalake mas efficient dahil 75-80% lang ang work ng babae every month dahil sa kabuwanan?!? So bale taasan ko na lang sahod ng lalake, ganun? Wag na akong kumuha ng babae?

    13. 1:14 Gets ko point nung nauna. Imagine 2 months wala ang babae kasi nanganak. Kung yan pa lang di na na-discriminate mga babae eh bakit gigil na gigil kayo sa 2 days off na leave. As a business owner ha. πŸ˜‚

    3. 12:45 I get it. I have a hormonal condition too. But you also have to understand na hindi lahat ng babae eh may issues gaya natin, so maaabuso talaga. Meron nga ring hindi nagkakaperiod or under forced menopause because of health issues. Pero makikinabang pa rin sila sa menstrual leave? Don’t you think it’s also unfair for the company?

      Delete
    4. So that means you have to prove you have pcos. Women will take advantage of it and pay a doctor to certify na may pcos sila. Vicious cycle.

    5. I agree. Not to disregard what we go through when we have our period, it can be painful and stressful, but this law is bound to be abused. How can you tell if your employee has her period? How can she prove it? Do employers have keep track of all of their employees’ menstrual cycles? Some of us don’t even get regular periods. Parang ang hirap ata nito. Some companies might opt to hire more men instead

    1. How can you prove you’re having painful cramps? Im a woman and
      i suffered from it when I was in my teens but I took midol and powered through. After giving birth to my daughter, it completely went away. As a woman and a mom of a female who deals with this
      monthly, this is too much to ask from your employers. What are we being reduced to as a society? We’re teaching kids to be whiny and lazy!

      Delete
    2. Sarili mo lang iniisip mo at hindi ang iba. Alam mo ba magiging impact niyan sa mga kababaihan pagnapasa yan? Less job for them. Sinong employer gugustuhin ng mga babaeng employee? Sa IT palang mga lalaki ang pinapaboran dahil mas mahaba ang oras na nagwowork sila kesa sa babae. Sabi ng isang CEO ng tech company, she'll employ men rather than women. Cuz men stay longer at work than women.

      Delete
    3. 1:34, I don’t agree with “teaching kids to be whiny and lazy”. Iba-iba ang severity ng dysmenorrhea.

      If taking Midol helps you then it is not as bad as you make it to be. I suffered from dysmenorrhea then and I still do now even after having 3 kids. Hindi lang cramps but may migraine headache and diarrhea pa. Endometriosis and fibroids have been ruled out. Most likely genetics since my mom suffered from it and my daughter is suffering from it too.

      There are others whose conditions are worse. In one of the companies I worked for, I had a colleague who would faint at work. If you have not experienced this, then you are not in a position to speak because you don’t understand where other women are coming from.

      Delete
    4. If this passes as a bill, I wouldn’t hire women. Plain and simple. You can’t really expect equality when you require special treatment like this. Stay at home.

  14. Naiintindihan ko naman san nanggagaling yung mga di nakakaranas ng severe menstrual pain dito. Sana hindi nyo maranasan kasi you would not wish it to happen to yourself or someone you love. Pain from endometriosis and adenomyosis is real. It is debilitating. Yung iba nagreresign na sa kahihiyan kasi di makapagleave sa trabaho. Nadidiscriminate din. Sobrang helpful nitong menstrual leave or kung di naman kaya ay work from home para sa mga kababaihan na nakakaranas ng matinding sakit buwan buwan.

    2. Sick leave naman nga siya if you think about it pero it's specific to menstrual pain. Ibig sabihin lang nirerecognize na bukod sa mga sakit na pwedeng maexperience ng isang tao eh merong nararanasan ang mga babae na di nararanasan ng iba at hindi ito dapat winawalang bahala. Siguro naman bago din ma-approve to may measures naman in place.

    2. Anong odd? I almost died when I had a ruptured ectopic pregnancy. I lost consciousness because of blood loss and kailangan ma stretcher and ambulance sa hospital. More than 2L yung blood loss and I had to be given 4 bags of blood.

    3. Anon 1:45 May mga studies na nagsasabi na myth lang yang gender pay gap na yan pati yang unequal opportunity na yan. Dito lang sa office namin, same lang sweldo ng mga baguhan. Nagkakaiba na lang pag pumasok na ang performance, of course mas madaming lalaki ang willing mag-OT, willing mag relocate, while ang babae pag nabuntis na mas matagal sila na nawawala sa office, dun nagkakatalo, hindi dahil sa gender nila kungdi sa choices at decisions nila.

    2. i am helping managing a local business. nakakaloka naman talaga. 105 days ang maternity leave (w pay) pwde pa nilang iextend, wala pang limit to! hahanap kami to cover her habang wala siya. wala naman sanang problema pero malaki ang increase this year ng SSS contributions. hirap na din ang mga EMPLOYERS to stay afloat. kaya hndi maiiwasan to pick male applicant kesa sa female.

  22. Isn’t this the same as sick leave?
    What I’d really like to see is affordable and non-tax on menstrual items kasi mahal every month.

  23. I hope na mabusisi ang deliberation nito para hindi maabuso. Pero nakakalungkot ang ibang comments ng mga babae dito. I'd rather go to work kesa mamilipit sa menstrual cramps sa bed. Grabe inaabot ko sa muscle pains. Tapos sobrang dizzy pa ako pag tumatayo kasi nauubusan ako ng dugo. Mag isa pa naman ako nakatira sa apartment so I have to take care of myself alone. Hindi pwede na maabuso yan pero hindi naman ibig sabihin na absent ka dahil sa menstruation eh happy happy ka lang sa bahay.

    1. Sis, may sick leave. Bat di mo gamitin pag inaatake ka ng pain? Wag magpakabayani sa trabaho. Resign ka ngayon, saglit lang may kapalit ka na. Leaves are there for a reason. Use them when you need them. Pero syempre di komo andyan aabusuhin naman.

At magiging less competitive tayo sa mga investors dahil bukod sa ang dami nating holidays meron pang additional na ganyan. Let's be honest, maraming mang-aabuso diyan.

  35. Employee mentality kasi ang mga Pinoy instead of entrepreneurial mentality kaya laging what’s in it for me ang iniisip. If you have the mind of an entrepreneur, hiring women would cost you more than hiring men because they’ll be paid 24 days for the menstrual leave every year on top of the 90 day maternity leave.

Ang dapat ireview is yung government-mandated leaves na pwede ibigay sa employees—-biruin mo 5 days a year lang including sick leave na iyan.

  40. It all boils down to the kind of employees you have. Admittedly, madaming Pinoys ang mahilig mag-petiks or makwenta kaya tinatake advantage or inaabuso ang leave. This is one reason why I don’t like having a Filipino in my team.

    The firm I work for now is very understanding with this health issue. We are allowed to work from home when we are suffering from dysmenorrhea. Funny enough, I don’t see any of my colleagues use this as an excuse to work from home. Most of us rarely take sick leave and cannot even use up our annual leave.

  50. I think ok naman na parang sick leave, kung ok ka pa din during periods you can go to work, pero if its too bad you can take the day/s off. Its more recognising that period pains can be incapacitating kasi dati its unheard of to even take days off "just because" of period pains

    ReplyDelete
  51. Maybe it’s better to extend sick leave rather than make menstrual leave. I think everyone- May matres or Wala maapreciate yun. And Kung pwede hiwalay ang vl sa sick leave. Pero in reality pag free lancer ka naman Walang leaves naman. Anyway, sana yung mga factory workers mabigyan ng longer sick leave. Mas prone kasi sila Jan.

  54. In the long run, companies will think twice of hiring women. Siguro need more pag-aralan to, i think if you are truly experiencing in pain and with medical cert, pwede!

  55. If they will push for this, mga babae din ang kawawa kase hindi sila iha hire ng companies. Meron na din namang Magna Carta for women, that covers reproductive health ng mga babae. And lastly, being physically fit should always be a requirement sa pagtratrabaho, so if you are a person na monthly o weekly o regularly na nagkakasakit, better prioritize your health muna than work.

      Ang daming drama ng ibang babaeng emplyeado sa totoo lang, dadagdagan mo pa ng additional paid leaves. Pwede naman sa sick leave kunin yun. Dagdagan ang sick leave para lahat makinabang, basta may med cert na isubmit.

May punto naman po... sana wag puro pakabig... may sick leave benefit naman if in case one need to rest due to dysmenorrhea... additional paid leave will cost too much for business owners specially for small businesses... sana maunawaan din natin... generally Philippines has the most number of paid holidays... wag na natin idagdag ang menstrual leave sa bayarin ng mga business owners...

  67. There are some cases where it is necessary, as in the case of women who have endemetriosis or severe dysmenorhhea. I will not advocate for a paid leave but to replace it with overtime or flexible replacement day, even consider it as sick leave without negative consequence.

    Putting it in law as a paid leave will encourage abuse by women who don't need it and it will also cause companies to discriminate more against women in hiring, which is a backward move in our effort to let women be competitive in positions dominated by men.
