The Code on Wages Bill, 2019, that was introduced in Parliament on Tuesday, would provide benefits of minimum wages and other wage-related protections to a large number of unorganised sector workers, the Bharatiya Mazdoor Sangh said on Thursday.
The RSS-affiliated trade union said the present laws covered fewer workers and had different wages for different sectors and jobs.
“The Code has removed the old system of scheduling of sectors for minimum wages... Revision of minimum wages is made compulsory within five years,” the statement by BMS national president Saji Narayanan C.K. said.
Welcoming the Bill, he said the Bill “should be passed by both Houses at the earliest”
