Why are the wages for farm labourers in Palampur less than minimum wages?

Answer :

Labourers are the people who work for the landlords. They work on the field allotted on daily wages it depends from region to region. Sometimes they are paid in cash or get daily meals too. They do not have the right over the crops grown on the land. Farming requires a great deal of hard work which is done by these labourers.

If labourers are available in scarce quantity the crop producers either have to invest a huge capital to set up machines for the production or get labourers transported from different regions.


In Palampur, the labourers have huge competition for work. So people agree to work even for low wages.
