May 3, 2010 Monday is Declared as Special Non Working Holiday in the Philippines

MANILA, Philippines - President Arroyo today declared May 3, 2010 as a special non-working holiday in lieu of May 1, Labor Day. 
Executive Secretary Leandro Mendoza said May 1, which falls on a Saturday, is not a holiday. He said this declaration is based on Republic Act 9492 or the holiday economics of President Arroyo.

RA 9492 mandates that most holidays, except those with religious significance, will be shifted to the nearest Monday. 

Labor Secretary Marianito Roque earlier ruled out any announcements of a wage hike from President Arroyo on Labor Day.
