Plea for Government Jobs for One in a Family

All India Youth Federa­tion (AIYF) has sought en­hancing the present age of 14 for compulsory education to 17 to abolish child labour practice.

Passing a resolution at the two-day state conference, the meet sought the government machinery to find out the socio-economic reasons which led to parents sending their wards to work.

The ob­noxious practice of child la­bour cannot be eradicated unless a tangible solution is found out.

Yet another issue dis­cussed at the conference was the Sumangali scheme imple­mented by the textile mills in Coimbatore district. Young girls are engaged as mill workers for paltry wages.

And they are sheltered in mill godowns in unhygienic conditions.

The meeting resolved to urge the state government to think in terms of streamlining the Sumangali scheme through a legislation to prevent girls be­ing exploited by the mill own­ers.

In another resolution, the meet expressed concern over unemployment problem with live register crossing over 62 lakh.

Government jobs have taken a back seat with job-seek­ers anxiously waiting for a post­ing in the government depart­ments.

Instead of giving away free-bies, the meeting suggested providing a government job to one person in a family. This alone would end unem­ployment crisis.
