To those who still prefer to work during 2018 National Holidays, know that you should be paid more than the overtime rate on regular days (regular hourly rate + 25 percent of regular hourly rate). Those who work on regular holidays are paid at least 200 percent of the sum of their daily rate and cost of living allowance. Employees who work on special non-working days are paid at least 130 percent of the sum of their daily rate and cost of living allowance. Not bad, right?
