While addressing at the state-level Mahila Khet Majdoor convetion at the premises of Khet Majdoor Bhavan here on Sunday, Dey highlighted the current situation of women farm workers in the country.
He said that the women farm laborers who work for the landlords do not get proper wages. There is discrimination between men and women in paying wages. It is a matter of preference. But women farm laborers are not less than men in terms of work. But the wages are low. There are still many slave laborers in the country. Women farm laborers have to sell their labor at landlords’ houses for free, he added.
