The workers in the unorganized sector need protection on the following issues: wages, safety, and health. Explain with examples.
The unorganized sectors comprise of small-scale enterprises, where working hours are not fixed. It has daily wages and there is no job security. Example construction workers, people working in small workshops. Whereas the organized sector is opposite to it, it has job security, fixed wages. Example: factories, industries.
The people working in unorganized sectors mostly belong to the vulnerable section of society like the women, SC/STs, small and marginal farmers, artisans, etc. These farmers need to support by providing them with seeds, credit, agricultural equipment, selling, and receiving minimum wages.
The laborers working in urban areas in industries, factories and especially the women who face social discriminations many times need to be protected by the government.
As these workers get minimum wages and they find it hard in surviving, so facilities like living, health etc must also be looked by the government. They must get a facility like free health checkups in government hospitals.
These measures are necessary to be taken as this would lead to both social and economic development.
