Wage gap of rural & urban women workers must be closed

24
Apr '08
As per National Sample Survey Organisation report 2004-05, the difference of wages and salaries between rural and urban women employees is Rs. 67.66.

The average wages/salaries of a rural and urban women employee per day are Rs. 85.53 and Rs. 153.19 respectively.

In the rural areas, women are predominantly working in agriculture and related activities which are not very highly paid whereas in urban areas, women are working in different sectors including services and other organized sectors where the wages are higher.

Therefore this disparity in wages between rural and urban women could be attributed to difference in the nature of activities carried out by women in these areas.

This information was given by the Minister of State (Independent Charge) of the Ministry of Labour and Employment, Shri Oscar Fernandes in a written reply in the Rajya Sabha.
