कल हम लोग किसान थे,मालिक थे,आज अपने ही गांव में मज़दूर हैं...

Shankar Kumar a laborer in Urla Industrial area in Raipur is telling the story of his new life. He says earlier I was a farmer, I was an owner and now I am a laborer in my own village. 300 of us work in a factory from last 3 years. We get Rs 120 for a days work and the company does not give us any other legal benefits. Women get Rs 100 for the same work. When we try to make a union company gates gets closed on us. The government only supports the industrialists. Shankar Ji can be reached on 09039142049
