  2. If there is work on that day, workers shall be paid 200% of their daily wage for the first 8 hours. Thus, (basic wage + COLA) (200%).
  3. If workers worked overtime, they shall be paid an additional 30% of their hourly rate. Thus, (hourly rate of the basic wage) (200%) (130%) (number of hours worked overtime).
