Preventing Exploitation - Lesson Summary

There are thousands of underprivileged men, women and children in our country who are exploited by companies and people from a higher economic status. Advanced countries turn to developing countries like India as cheap labour is readily availability.

To cut costs, workers are made to work long hours with minimum wages, minimal infrastructure, and in environments that are sometimes dangerous. A worker’s life is not valued and most often his interest is not safeguarded by the employer.

It is the government’s responsibility to curb this exploitation and enforce rigorous laws. Though the Government of India has many laws in place for child labour, minimum wages, safety in a workplace, price control and the environment, only their implementation will bring the difference.

The Bhopal Gas Tragedy was the world’s worst industrial disaster that killed thousands of people in Bhopal. In this manic need of investment for the state, the government overlooked many safety measures in the plant. The Bhopal tragedy served as an eye opener for the government.

Many new laws were introduced after this and the awareness on the environment and its protection was brought to the forefront. The courts have declared the right to a healthy environment as a part of our constitution.
