    FOR BETTER CONDITIONS OF WORK – ARTICLE

    The economic crisis unleashed by COVID-19 has to be turned into opportunity. We need to identify the various bottlenecks in our economic system and rebuild our economic structures to ensure faster, sustainable and more inclusive growth. One of the most important bottlenecks in our economic system is that of poor plight of urban migrants. These migrants are forced to migrate to urban areas due to lack of employment opportunities in rural areas (i.e. distress migration). They are paid lower wages and are not entitled to social security benefits such as Insurance, Pension, housing etc. 

    • Reverse Migration of workers to rural areas
    • Need to reform economic structure
    • Proposed Economic Structure
    • Areas of focus – conditions of workers, development
