Many of them say Tk-50 hike inconsistent with current prices of essentials
After a 15-day work abstention, tea workers resumed work for a daily wage of Tk 170 yesterday morning.
Majority of them expressed their dissatisfaction over the Tk 50 pay hike and said they resumed work as they had no alternative.
“My family and I ate rice once a day for the last 15 days. I even could not purchase medicine for my father. I have no option but to resume work,” said Sukhia Ghatual, a worker in Moulvibazar’s Sreemangal.
