Question:

The workers in the unorganised sector need protection on the following issues : wages, safety and health. Explain with examples.

Answer:

Workers in the unorganized sector need protection on issues like wages, safety and health. This can be explained as follows :

1. Wages : The working hours of the unorganized sector workers are not fixed. They have to work for 10 to 12 hours without overtime. Lack of employment security is often found in these workers. Due to poverty, they often agree to work at low wage rates. Therefore, they should be given protection in this regard. Their working hours and wages should also be fixed.

2. Security : The workers of this sector are often involved in high risk works like brick industry, coal mines etc. Therefore, their safety should be absolutely guaranteed, so that the family does not face trouble later.

3. Health : These workers are poor. Their income is not so much that they can eat nutritious food. They work in adverse conditions of health. Due to these reasons their condition is not good. Important steps should also be taken regarding their health.
