(elbcradio.com/May 22, 2015)-The House of Representatives has deferred, to next week, deliberations on the National Legislative Joint Conference Committee’s Report regarding the Decent Work Bill.

The august body reached the decision Thursday, May 21, 2015 at the National Legislature in Monrovia, following the reading of the Committee’s report in Session.

Members of the Legislature said it was necessary to defer the discussions to allow them time to pursue the document and make an informed decision on the matter.

Plenary has accordingly mandated Chief Clerk, Mildred Sayon, to ensure that copies of the report are served the 73 members of the House of Representatives this week.

The Liberian Senate Tuesday passed the compromised version of the Decent Work Bill, submitted by the Legislative Conference Committee, at the Minimum Wage of US$5.50 per day for skilled laborers and US$3.50 for unskilled laborers.

It can be recalled that the Legislative Joint Conference Committee was set up to negotiate the two separate versions of the Decent Work Bill, earlier passed by the Liberian Senate and the House of Representatives.

The Legislative Joint Conference Committee comprises ten members.-
