The Industry Minister of Bangladesh issued a stern warning to vested interests who were trying to de-stabilise the ready-made garments sector in the country.

He said the government would not tolerate any attempts by these trouble makers to ruin the image of the garment manufacturing sector.

He called upon the workers and leaders to remain vigilant and said that he was very much sincere about raising the wages of the apparel sector workers.

But at the same time he said that all stake holders which include workers, leaders and the owners will need to be involved in the process.

Mr Barua was speaking a roundtable conference organised by the National Garments Labourers' Federation (NGLF) on "Rightful wage and rightful trade (Price)".

Dhaka University Professor, Mr Akash said that apart from providing a minimum wage, attention should be given to basic necessities of workers.

Delving out statistics, he said, the Bangladeshi garment industry workers were amongst the lowest paid in the Asian sub- continent countries.

He said, “Workers get up to $0.86 per hour in China, $0.51 in India, $0.43 in Sri Lanka, while the Bangladeshi workers get only $0.22.
