Zed asks fair pay structure for domestic help in India
Hindu statesman Rajan Zed has called for reforming the domestic workers segment so that it leads to less exploitation and more professionalism.
INDIA SHOULD come up with a fair pay structure for domestic workers, distinguished Hindu statesman Rajan Zed stated in Nevada (USA) today.
To prevent exploitation, India should ensure fair wages to domestic helpers. Remuneration should be compatible to the work they do, Zed, who is President of Universal Society of Hinduism, argued.
Rajan Zed further said although India was on track to become a global power, but her new prosperity had remained elusive for many. Despite economic miracle, many Indians still lived in desperate poverty. Inequalities in opportunities blocked poor people from participating in the growth process and they remained trapped in vicious cycle of poverty. It was blight on a country, which prided herself on having joined the league of hottest growth economies, Zed added.
Many stories related to physical abuse and economic exploitation have appeared in the media. Many domestic workers, of either gender, are often underpaid. Many of them are migrants from Nepal and Bangladesh, and face harassment from authorities. Due to the domestic worker sector being disorganized, low wages often lead to crimes for easy money.
The sooner this sector is organized the sooner it will become more professional and crimes will come down.
