Currently, safety, security, rights and justified wages of workers are a matter of priority in Bangladesh RMG sectors. Recently many workers died by building collapse or fire occurrence. As a result, foreign buyers continually pressure the government to improve safety and production environment for garments worker. After a series of protests in 2010, the national minimum wage in Bangladesh was increased from 1662 taka to 3000 taka up by 80%.
Despite this increase, the minimum monthly wage of garment factory worker is lower than the minimum monthly cost of living in Bangladesh, calculated by the National Garments Workers Federation, which is approximately 5000 taka. These wages are much lower than those in China, Cambodia, India, Pakistan, and Thailand. After a series of protests in 2010, the national minimum wage in Bangladesh was increased from 1662 taka to 3000 taka up by 80%.
and fire security the government and the owners of garments manufacturers are working together. The workers have been struggling to increase their monthly wages break-down for many days. The government and the owners of
garments have declared the new pay scale considering the living expenditure of labors/workers. Seems worker will pay
more attention and all the anxiety will
be removed soon from this sector.
