Sikkim Youth Org demands minimum wage for working class

The Forum has also appealed to the working-class population of the state to carry forward this struggle in an organized manner.

The Sikkim Progressive Youth Forum (SPYF) has reiterated its demand to ensure minimum wages for the working class in Sikkim.

Addressing a press conference at the Journalist Union of Sikkim office, the SPYF recalled the ruling Sikkim Krantikari Morcha’s pre-poll demand to the former government to ensure a minimum wage of Rs 21,000 for the working class.

The Forum has also appealed to the working-class population of the state to carry forward this struggle in an organized manner.

Talking exclusively to Northeast Live after the press conference, General Secretary of SPYF, Rupen Karki urged the Government to increase the daily wages at the earliest.

Karki further said that Rs 300 daily wage which is currently provided amounting to Rs 9000 monthly has led to the creation of huge economic differences in society.
