Insecurity of Job : Workers experience great employment unreliability. Workers feel steady risk of being rejected or dismissed. Negligible mistakes in work, non-completion of targets, reporting late to work even by a few minutes, and replying back when they are yelled at are all used as they are all utilized as ground for rejection. Furthermore, more than half of the workers will not sign any sort of agreement when they started working for a factory. Rules and Regulations of the factory : Most labours do not know about sets of principles. They are not given any kind of basic education about the rules or code of conduct to be followed during working time. Social Sustainability in Textile Industry 67

Labour union : Many factories do not have labour union. In case of any problem, the labourers confront the issue to the administration and reporting a problem quite often works out counterproductive for the worker. Even if the workers are dynamic for a union, they are degraded and demotivated by directors and administration. The pay board is an association under Ministry of Labour and Employment who chooses the compensation scale from government s point of view. Extra minutes pay and sponsorships have been incorporated to the normal compensation of the labourers in a few industrial facilities; however, the workers do not get it in time. Much of the time, additional time hours are not recorded legitimately. The workers and labour unions asserted that the latest wage fi nalized by the pay board is not suf fi ciently adequate to meet the present high expenses of living and expanding pattern of expansion. Workers regularly show disagreement against minimum wages, and call strikes which prompt tremendous measure of misfortune to the industry management, put danger to country s economy. Working excessively overtime is another issue. Labourers frequently do addi- tional time because to get additional pay to take care of high living expenses. In most cases, the labourers are forced to work additional time because to attain the target. Normally, it is common that the labours have to work eight hours per day and six days per week. Totally, their workload is 48 h per week. But in many textile industries, they are compelled to work for 60 h rather than 48 h. Kakuli and Risberg ( 2012 ) state that workers in Bangladesh textile industry work normally 76 h per week which is beyond the constraint. The labour act 2006 likewise expresses that a labourer ought to have been paid within 7 working days after completion of work. Shockingly, a large portion of the factories essentially do not tail this. In common, around 50 % bene fi t of the business should reach to labourer s wage which is commonly followed around the world. Many textile industries in the world do not share the exact percentage of pro fi t for the welfare of workers.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
