Khadi employees not paid minimum wages before Vishu

ll

THRISSUR: It has been alleged that the khadi employees in Kerala were not given minimum wages just a day before Vishu. Minimum wages and DA for 14 months and yarn incentive for three years are yet to be paid. Labor Minister told in March that Rs 20.61 crore had been sanctioned and will be paid immediately, but this was not fulfilled.

Rs 104 DA per day is to be paid by the government. In addition, the minimum wage of Rs 14.90 for spinning and weaving four meters is to be paid jointly by the organization and the government. Now only Rs 180 as institutional contribution is received instead of Rs 461. After deducting the welfare fund from that, it will be Rs. 150. Also, a target of 24 per day has been set for spinners and four meters for weavers. Adequate wages are paid only if the target is met.

Workers in the state - 14,000

Dues per worker- Rs 35,000 to 70,000
