SANTO DOMINGO.- Senate Social Security Commission president Jose Maria Sosa, who heads the study of the bill to create the public sector wage regulation law, on Monday said it’s universal for all government agencies.
He said however that there’s still no consensus on the salary of the President, whose baseline was to be set on the salaries of other officials.
He said even the several government agencies, among them the Central Bank, Internal Taxes and Customs which had asked the Congress to be excluded from the legislation’s wage ceilings, will have to comply with the law.
The Commission’s report will be debated by the full floor of the Senate tomorrow.
Senate commissioners Charlie Mariotti and Rafael Vargas agree that the irrational salary discretion cannot continue in the country.
