PM assures revision of minimum wages for RMG workers
Jul '10
Prime Minister, Sheikh Hasina, recently, while speaking at a function at Gono Bhaban, stated that, the current minimum wages being paid to a apparel worker are too less even to meet their basic requirements, and therefore, the government would shortly publicize the much-awaited revised wage structure for these workers.

She informed that, she had discussions with the concerned Minister in this regard, and the minister has assured that, they will soon come out with the new wage structure for apparel workers.

She firmly disparaged the employers, who singled out the women in deciding wages for them, this is despite of the fact that, even women delivered same amount of work, sometimes even more than their male counterparts. The government would initiate necessary actions to eradicate such discriminatory practices, said the Prime Minister.

While speaking on the ongoing turbulences in the RMG sector she stated that, a particular vested group is inducing the industrious apparel labourers. But that, the workers should understand that, as they impair the clothing factories, they themselves are the sufferers.

Prime Minister has therefore, pleaded the apparel workers to maintain their calm, while assuring them of government's earnestness in deploying measures for their welfare.

Also, the Prime Minister has invited all the NGOs and development organizations in the country to take advantage of the loan schemes, floated by the government, to construct houses for the apparel workers, and for women workers in particular.
