October 31 - Special Non-Working Holiday

President Noynoy Aquino just issued Proclamation 265 declaring October 31 a special non-working day or holiday in short it’s going to be a long weekend (Saturday, Sunday, Monday, and Tuesday). Below is the full text of the Proclamation 265.

This was made to give people opportunity to properly observe Undas or Araw ng mga Patay (Nov 1), which invariably requires them to travel to and from different regions in the Philippines. Those who decide to work on the holidays are reportedly entitled to 200% (double pay) of their basic wages.
