Exploitative employers

It is a matter of extreme disappointment that a number of employers, including some well-known multinational companies, are agitating against the Sindh government’s laudable decision to increase the minimum wage of workers to Rs25,000 per month. If one scans through the financial reports of public listed companies, the remuneration paid to chief executive officers (CEOs) is enough to pay the minimum wage of 166 persons for a year. The employers should end their resistance, and voluntarily raise the minimum wage.
