Philippine President Benigno S. Aquino III has signed a law that promotes the welfare of household workers, a senior official said Wednesday.

Deputy Presidential Spokesperson Abigail Valte said that Aquino inked Republic Act No. 10361 or "An Act Instituting Policies for the Protection and Welfare of Domestic Workers" on Jan. 18 this year.

"The law will take effect 15 days after its publication in the print version of the Official Gazette or a newspaper of general circulation," she said in a text message to reporters.

The law provides the setting of a minimum wage and other benefits for some two million domestic workers in the country.
