Effect of Minimum Wages Hike in Kerala
This wage increase has no effect in Kerala. We already pay Rs 700 as wage to agricultural labourers and non agricultural labourers fix their wage themselves.I guess these reforms affect daily wage labourers in those states where wages are low like Bengal, Orissa, Uttar Pradesh etc.Obviously Kerala is not interested in Agriculture despite having water resources and fertile lands. Of late we are interested in Organic farming because we were given poison sprayed vegetables to eat from Tamil Nadu. So Chief Minister of Kerala has urged all citizens to start vegetable farming on their rooftops and on their own since he know clearly that hiring labourers make those vegetables very expensive to sell despite pasting an organic seal on them.
