A number of plantation workers’ unions staged a protest outside the Employers Federation of Ceylon at Rajagiriya on Monday demanding the authorities to increase the daily basic wage of plantation workers to Rs.1,000. The protesters said the Friday’s decision to increase the daily wage to Rs.700 was not enough. Pix by Kithsiri De Mel

    While a normal helper to a mason gets Rs.1500 as wage what these tea pluckers getting is not fair. For the time being, they should adjust it because if wages increased the price of tea will go up and the demand for Sri Lankan tea will decrease. This will lead to a great loss for the economy. Anyways our sentimental fools will not understand it.
