Ehsaas has launched 'Mazdoor Ka Ehsaas Report' to safeguard labour welfare. 

The report was launched in webinar today (Saturday) on the eve of Labour Day which was co-chaired by Special Assistant on Poverty Alleviation and Social Protection Dr. Sania Nishtar and Special Assistant on Overseas Pakistanis and Human Resource Development Syed Zulfikar Bukhari.

Addressing the webinar, Dr. Sania Nishtar said that our prophet Muhammad (PBUH) was the first to stand for the rights of workers when he said to 'pay the worker his wages before his sweat has dried'.

She said the MKE report is the first of its kind that will help the government focus on universalizing the social protection system in Pakistan and with a particular emphasis on including informal economy workers in the fold of social protection.

The special assistant said Labour Force Survey 2017-18 micro-data suggests that 24.89 million workers are at-risk for jobs disruption and income losses.

Endorsing the finding of report, the Special Assistant Zulfiqar Bukhari said the Ministry of Overseas Pakistanis and Human Resource Development is committed to Prime Minister's vision of Mazdoor Ka Ehsaas to ensure equitable distribution of resources in society.
