ISLAMABAD: Prime Minister Imran Khan has expressed his government s commitment to improve the working and living conditions of workers and to supplement their welfare by providing better housing, education facilities and health cover for them and their families
“The Government aims to develop automated, integrated systems for workers welfare institutions to ensure transparency and to curtail delays in providing relief to the workers”, the prime minister said in his message on the occasion of World Labour Day observed on May 1.
PM Imran said that the 1st of May, the International Workers Day, reminds us of the sacrifices of the workers who laid down their lives for their rights. The day symbolizes the sanctity and dignity of labour and at the same time, it is an acknowledgement of the importance of workers for economic growth of the country.
He said that our religion emphasizes the principles of social justice and respect for rights of people. Our Holy Prophet Muhammad (Peace be upon Him) himself worked on occasions including Ghazwa-e-Khandaq to demonstrate respect for work. Respect for hard work and recognition of the rights of workers are extremely important in the process of progress.
