The workers in the unorganized sector need protection on the following issues: wages, safety and health. Explain with examples.
In unorganized sector there are small and scattered units which are largely out of the control of the government. This provides no kind of provision for overtime, paid leave, holidays, and no leave due to sickness as well.
a) Wages: Workers are exploited and not paid a fair wage for their labour. They need protection because of their low wages. Therefore fair wages should be paid to them so that their livelihood can be put on ease at some point.
b) Safety: There is no kind of safety provided to the workers working in the mines or fireworks factories. They face great risk of their life. Therefore security and attention must be rendered to them.
c) Health: The workers that work at unhygienic places and specially for infinite hours are found in the unorganized sectors and their health is at risk which must be the matter of deep consideration.
Besides these issues a large number of people are employed on their own. For example- sellers on the street or repair workers. Cobblers, vendors etc.
