This was stated by the Uttar Pradesh Kalyan Parishad (UPKP) Punjab here on Wednesday.
He said many of these employers were shopkeepers and wholesale dealers whose shops are based within the walled city.
“We are not being paid a fixed salary and wages are decided on a piece rate basis.
With this amount it is very difficult to feed a five-member family bear education and medical expenses besides paying room rent” he said.
