"MDMWFI demands immediate increase in the wages of mid-day meal workers and implementation of the decisions of the 45th Indian Labour Conference - recognition as workers, minimum wages of Rs 18,000 per month and pension and social security," the federation said in a statement.
"Mid-day meal workers, the majority of whom are women from socially backward sections, work for six hours a day and get a meagre salary of Rs 1,000 per month for ten months a year. They have been ignored even in this latest announcement by the Modi government," it added.
To protest the "callous attitude" of the government, the MDMWFI will organise demonstrations throughout the country at block and district centres on September 24 and will give a memorandum to the prime minister, the statement said.
