Md Nadimul Haque’s Supplementary Qs on mitigating job crisis, app-based gig workers’ social security
Sir, there is a job crisis in the country. Unemployment is at its highest. On top of that, stagflation is currently gripping the global economy. As a direct result of this, further rise in unemployment is expected and forced retrenchment is also expected. How is the Government going to deal with these? Is the Government planning to bring appbased gig workers into the ambit of Code on Social Security and provide them with all employment benefits available to formal sector workers?
