The coronavirus pandemic has brought the world to an abrupt halt. Ever since the catastrophe has unfolded in India, it has majorly affected the unorganized sector of this country meaning the daily wage workers such as house helps, municipality workers, auto-rickshaw wallahs, drivers, construction workers, etc. While a lot of us have been able to stock up on essential supplies and gone into quarantine, a sore cloud of adversity has broken in the faces of those whose income depends on their daily work. Ever since the lockdown, the daily wage workers are left with no backing or means to earn their daily bread to be able to sustain themselves or their families.
With literally nothing to cover them during the trying times of medical emergency, the sun of hope broke its light upon them in the form of the many people and stakeholders who have been relentlessly and selflessly coming forward to help them. While the Government continues to take aggressive steps to address the crisis at hand, it is the need of the hour for all responsible citizens to come together in greater numbers and avert the effects of devastation that has especially and unfortunately exposed the daily wage workers to an acute financial vulnerability.
