Rep. Zarzar Wants Board Determine Minimum Wage
By Calvin Brooks

MONROVIA, March 23 (LINA) - Sinoe County Representative Matthew G. Zarzar has differed with the approach that the National Legislature should determine the wages of workers in the country.

Representative Zarzar observed that politicians should not be allowed to set a minimum wage for workers, noting that there are different categories of workers, and that it requires technocrats to set wages for the various categories of workers in the country.

The Sinoe County lawmaker made the assertion Friday when he inducted the newly-elected officials of the Ministry of Education Central Staff Association (MOECOWA) in Monrovia.

He warned against politicizing the Decent Wage Bill, emphasizing that it should not be left to politicians to determine how much workers should be paid.

He said workers should be paid according to their categories, adding that professional workers deserve higher salaries than domestic workers.

The Sinoe County lawmaker maintained that the minimum wage of workers should not be set across the board as the Legislature is determined to do, but rather, to allow the Minimum Wage Board, which has been set up for that purpose, to do so.

Representative Zarzar emphasized that the Minimum Wage Board has the expertise to structure the minimum wages of workers, according to their various categories and competencies.
