L&T Has Money for PM-CARES, Not to Pay Wages

l&t

Engineering giant Larsen & Toubro (L&T) has lost Rs. 12,000 crore worth billing due to nationwide lockdown. Even after that L&T decided to give Rs.150 crore to PM-CARES, but denied paying wages to the workers, most of them were migrant. These workers belonged to North India.

Over the issue of non-payment of salary, over 1,600 workers of L&T protested at IIT-H. They had been ignored over the period of lockdown and were not paid salary. Neither they were provided food and accomodation. The migrant workers raised their voice to send them home.

Earlier the company’s top management told its employees in a webinar that it would look to deffer monetary appraisals due to the loss of Rs 12,000 crore worth billing due to the nationwide lockdown.
