Stop wage theft in India
14 May 2012
In India, factories are stealing wages from workers. Help Mazdoor Ekta Manch change this. Sign the petition.
Right now, garment factory workers in India are suffering serious wage theft. On top of poverty pay by companies who violate the national minimum wage, people have their earnings stripped using all kinds of ploys. Illegal deductions from wages, delays in payment of wages and forced overtime are all too common. Women are often paid 300-400 Rupees less per month than their male counterparts, even though they are doing the same work.
Mazdoor Ekta Manch, an organisation based in Gurgaon are campaigning on this issue. At the end of this month (May), they’ll be meeting the Minister for Labour and Employment to discuss their concerns. But they need your help.
The Indian government need to know that the international community is watching. They need to know that the public is standing behind Mazdoor Ekta Manch. Their petition already has 1,500 signatures - make yours one of them.
