Minimum wages for Domestic help/ household work in Rajasthan
Rajasthan became the first state to set minimum wages for Domestic help i.e. Minimum wages for household work.
Household work constitutes – Washing clothes and utensils, cleaning the house, doing other household work, childcare, dropping kids to school etc.
The minimum wage set for this work is 6058 per month when the employed person works 8 hours daily.
For work of 1 hour per day, the monthly payable amount is Rs. 757.
This is a great initiative to introduce labour reforms in the unorganised sector. But the point whether the government be able to really enforce and implement it, remains a point of contention.
