Yes, the Minister was correct. The State Governments are the agencies who have to look into the local problems of the unorganised sector. In case of construction workers, the steps needed are
(i) Government inspectors must ensure that the labour should get protective equipment like helmets, gloves, boots and other protective equipments to ensure their safety. In many cases, accidents occur during construction in which the labourers get injured or di&due to not having the protective equipment required.
(ii) It must be ensured that the labour should not be asked to work more than 8 hours in a day and they should get their weekly off day with wages.
(iii) No child labour should be employed in construction, as this is a hazardous activity.
Similarly, appropriate steps can be taken for unorganised sector activities in other fields.
