The Modi Government is gradually taking away the social security benefits to the workers to help the employers.
The latest is the decision of the government to give option to the workers in garments, textile and made-up sectors who are getting less than Rs.15,000 per month to opt out of EPF. Though the decision is for option, the employers will forcibly compel the poor workers to opt out of EPF. This helps the employers not to remit the 12% contribution to be paid by them. This decision will deprive the workers from the only statutory social security after their retirement.
We demand that the government rescind this anti-worker decision.
