Apparel workers insist on initiating rationing system

The government of Bangladesh has been requested by the National Garments Workers Federation to initiate rationing system for the apparel workers right away as they are paid lowest among the industry workers.

The apparel workers have formed a human chain on the World Food Day, 2010 at Muktangon, where the leaders of the federation came out with their demand. The major leaders of the federation have participated in the human chain. According to the leaders, since the apparel workers are the lowest wage earners among all industrial workers in the country, the rationing system is a necessity to alleviate their misery.

Of late, the government of Bangladesh has announced a new wage structure for the workers of the RMG sector. But the leaders were of the opinion that the wage structure was not enough for the workers. They have urged the government to start the rationing system for the apparel workers.

The government has assured to start the rationing system several times but has never fulfilled the resolution. The leaders have demanded that the government should implement its resolution for the sake of three million workers who are engaged in earning about 77 percent of the total export revenue of the country.
