(mylbsonline.com/Liberia)-The Liberian Senate says its decision for setting the minimum wage at US$ 6.00 in the recently passed Decent Work Bill was done in good faith.

Senate Pro-Tempore, Gbehzohngar Findley, said: “ It would have been unfair to the workforce of Liberia had the Senate left the minimum wage issue entirely with the minimum wage board.

“The decision to set the minimum wage at US$ 6.00 a day drew public criticisms, including the House of Representatives.” Pro-Tempore Findley noted.

Senator Findley made the statement Saturday, July 6, 2013 in Buchanan, Grand Bassa County, when he addressed a cross-section of journalists there.

Commenting on the Central Bank’s loan issue, The Pro- Tempore said: “The Senate has set up a committee to investigate whether or not the bank has violated the Act establishing it.”

He told mylbsonline that the Senate will conduct hearings on the CBL matter on July 10, 2013 and subsequently recommend to Plenary for way forward.
