    Protesters burn an effigy of Philippine President Benigno Aquino III during a rally near the Presidential Palace in Manila to celebrate international Labor Day known as May Day Tuesday May 1, 2012 in the Philippines. Thousands of workers marched under a brutal sun in Manila to demand a wage increase amid an onslaught of oil price increases, but the Philippine President rejected a $3 daily pay hike which the workers have been demanding since 1999 and warned may worsen inflation, spark layoffs and turn away foreign investors.

    Workers march towards the presidential palace during a Labor Day march to press their demands for a 125 peso wage hike in Manila May 1, 2012. President Benigno Aquino on Tuesday rejected the proposed P125 ($ 2.97) legislated wage hike, saying it will cost the jobs of some 527,000 workers. In his speech during a dialogue with labor and employer groups in Malaca?ang, Aquino expressed apprehension that the proposal might discourage prospective investors and delay the expected economic growth, a local media reported.
