India's Children Deserve An Education. Break the Wage Cage

India's Farmers Need To Receive Minimum Wage

India has a population of 1.2 billion.  It is a major source of labor for both European and U.S, markets.

In India, millions of children attend school without breakfast, shoes or books, walking to school through mud and slush. When their final exam comes, if they receive low scores and fail, they aren’t allowed to continue their education and attend college. One low score costs them their future. They become an economically caged citizen.  They only have access to hard labor jobs that pay less than minimum wage.  All because of one low text score.

 These students work in many industries. For example, many work in factories sewing garments for the clothing industry—for big designers with prestigious names. Americans are silent partners in this untold misery. These children are paid a pittance to make garments sold by designers to Americans who pay top dollar. The laborers see none of that money. 

 The same is true for farmers who work in the field and can’t survive because of the currency falling to the lowest value. As of today, 65,000 farmers have committed suicide because they can't support their families and survive, no matter how hard they work.

Lawmakers in India enjoy wealth while running the country with a currency fallen to the lowest value.  The current lawmaker failed the election exam and is still writing a finance policy for America and Europe to buy. This is unjust.

 We ask for two things:

  • Students in high school need a minimum of 16 marks to pass, and for college graduates, 26 marks.
  • Farmers must be paid at least minimum wage, according to the international standard. All loan payments must deduct Farmer wages and depreciate the loan amount by years with special depreciating interest as India is selling cheap currency which helps Lawmakers and not citizens. 

 Please sign this petition to support our initiative. For the sake of India's children and farmers,  it’s time to break the wage cage and guarantee India's farmers a liveable wage.  THANK YOU.
