    It is good for the workers but could the estate afford this pay hike. If the income of the estates stays the same or less then estates will reduce the workers to keep the estates functioning. If it gets worse they may even close down. So did the pay hike did good to the estate workers ? To compensate the estates should receive more for their green leaf they produce. Not the current prices.

    Well said!

    They are better off than Colombo workers. Family income will become at least 30,000 per month plus housing water medical, No transport cost, clothing cost is very small as living in the workplace itself. Sadly at least 50% will spend for Arrack. See how many liquar bars in a town like Bogawantalawa, Norwood.
