A lucid analysis by Zahid and Sanjana on the issue of raising the minimum wage in the RMG sector. The suggested Tk. 3000 level seems appropriate. The real issue, however, is that the rich factory owners might feel that such a revision is likely to become a regular feature and will reduce their profits. I think it is time that they share a small percantage of their prosperity with the workers! Perhaps an op-ed piece in the Dhaka newspaper is required.
