Exploitation of Wage Workers

FacebookStumbleUponGoogle+TwitterEmail

I am Vidhya Chanran Mishra from Village Suhira, Post Karsualal, Tehsil Mada, District Singrauli, Madhya Pradesh. I have worked Essar Power in Badhora, Singrauli for six months and left in distress. Though my working hours were eight hours per day but I regularly worked for twelve hours and I was paid around 6,000 on the basis of eight hours. I have never been paid overtime. I have raised this issue and also given in writing seeking my compensation for extra time but it’s of no use. As evidence, I have the photocopy of the gate pass which can establish the number of hours that I had put in at work. They also exploit their workers by paying less money than the government fixed standard. The workers are paid Rs 150-160 for 8 hours where in the government fixed wage is Rs 300 for 8 hours. This is my request and appeal to the listeners of Radio Sangharsh, that this project must be shut down and proper wage compensation has to be made to all the workers.
