Pakistani activists welcome home-based worker proposals

Some human rights activists in Pakistan have welcomed proposed federal government policies and provincial legislation aimed at improving conditions for the country’s home-based workers.

HomeNet Pakistan, a collection of organizations that advocates for rights of such workers, estimates 5 million Pakistanis work from home for other employers, with 80 percent of them women and 65 percent living in urban or semiurban areas. They work in informal and unorganized areas such as garment making, hand-loom weaving and selling newspapers. By Ihsan Qadir   |   March. 13, 2014http://www.upi.com Read More
