Workers to get employment

Kathmandu, May 1 : The Government is to provide work to the labourers in the informal sector, affected by the lockdown imposed to stem the spread of Coronavirus in the country.

Sharing decisions made by the Council of Ministers at the routine press meet at Singha Durbar, Government spokesperson Dr Yubaraj Khatiwada said a decision has been taken to employ the out-of-work labourers from the informal sector at all three levels of government. The local levels will determine the wage, which can be in the form of cash or food.

Prior to this, the government was providing the informal workers with relief support including daily essentials. Government data shows that more than 600,000 workers received the relief support provided by the government. The government has also decided that the workers in the formal sector should be paid 50 per cent of their salary for the month of Baisakh, which ends on mid-May.
