The right to a living wage is a core demand of the labour movement, and a strong minimum wage law is an expression of worker solidarity across employment sector, region, ethnicity, caste, and gender. There is still a long way to go in the struggle for a just minimum wage in India, but the Minimum Wages Act of 1948 provides a natural starting point for understanding the fight. Thozhilalar Koodam presents a comic on the Minimum Wages Act: how it is used, abused, and how it can better serve the interests of the working class.
