Unpaid workers are workers who do not receive regular pay, which is either the working owners themselves or the apprentices and learners. Persons rendering at least one-third of the usual working time for the establishments without regular pay are also considered unpaid workers, based on the Philippine Statistics Authority’s definition.

BusinessWorld Research came up with the top 10 businesses which employed unpaid workers in the manufacturing industry by deducting the number of paid employees from total employment and ranking them based on the highest number of unpaid employees.
