A seminar with Home Based Workers Union organized by LEF
in Charsadda, KP
LEF organised a seminar today with Home Based Workers Union KP in Charsadda on the occasion of South Asia Day for Home Based Workers. HBWs in KP are being organised in union with support of LEF.
KP government has no priority for protection of workers right. Women from this informal sector of home based work are being paid very low and all the profits of their work is being taken by middlemen, contractors and shopkeepers. Also there is need to open skill and facilitation centers by KP government to market very fancy work of embroidery and garments being done at homes by women.
KP government should announce the Policy for Home Based Workers immediately and should constitute a law for them so that they can also be protected under labour laws and get at least minimum wages, social security and old age benefits.
