I dont want to get into a debate here on this topic neither I want to prove that you are wrong. But try lifting a 30kg part 50-60 times a day and that too on a timeline. I have done both of the work (innovation- I am in R&D) and worked on the line also for our prototypes. With my bare hands I have made 4 tractors and I can tell the latter role is very much exhausting. Physical effort leads to earlier fatigue than mental fatigue.

Physical fatigue may tire a weak person earlier, but will disappear with rest. Mental fatigue occurs in everyone and will disappear with a stroke or heart attack.

Looks like the workers & management has reached a settlement about the wages. Below is an excerpt from TOI and the detailed link here

Quote:
The country's largest car maker Maruti Suzuki India on Tuesday reached a wage settlement agreement with its workers at its Gurgaon plant, under which the employees will get an average salary hike of Rs 18,000 per month spread over three years.

Under the three-year agreement, to be implemented with retrospective effect from April this year, the workers will receive 80 per cent of the increased salary in the first year and the rest in the following two years
Isn't this a clear indication to the low wages the workers were getting? Or to put in a harsher tone, a clear acknowledgement from Maruti that they were exploiting the worker community? The clause that 80% of the hike is immediate or in the first year proves they want to normalize the salary at the earliest!

Hardly matters as Gurgaon Plant was never problematic. Anyways Majority of the workers in gurgaon are permanent.

Key is Manesar Plant where workers has even refused formation of a welfare committee as read in news. Could n ;t find the link now.

On the same topic

^So, workers in Manesar and Gurgaon will get paid differently for the same work?
Minor differences are OK since cost of living may be the variable, but 14K to 22K per month difference is huge.

Salary is never about what you deserve, its about how much you can negotiate!!

My relative who works in a company (not Maruti) near Manesar told that when the factory reopened, they found dead body of a worker (not the HR guy). Maruti has managed to keep this undercover they says. He tells that the wages being paid for the contract workers are paltry and is not at all enough to make a living these days.
For japanese "business is war". Its high time government takes strict action on these companies

if this goes on - guess maruti should consider the tata way and move the entire plant to some other location.

hope the MP government lures them

Now the pay is hiked like no one else. This pay is on par with what IT people are getting.

There are too many people to shout against Maruti, but too less when they do something good.

come on this is rumor mongering at its best. There is no way Maruti can supress such a bomb if it is true.

I hope for once people stop all this nonsense and get back to work as that will ultimately pay for their bread and butter. There are millions of workers in India in working in worse conditions and for far less pays than even the temp workers at maruti. If they dont like the work just leave but sabotaging the workplace is not the way to go.

There is no smoke without fire. No one will attack and kill someone just like that.
If Maruti is such a good company why are they not recruiting people as permanent workers instead of contract workers? They have to pay far less money and you cannot go on milking people like that. The issue was there for a long time and this time it reached the breaking point.
And government is also supporting this milking of poor workers. Auto industry is notorious for this contract labour system

With the wages that is being published, if one cannot make a decent living, Gurgoan's cost of living is the issue. These wages would easily constitute (upper?) middle class level in most tier 2 cities.
A company cannot be doling out all that work force wants while maintaining product prices as well.

I honestly believe, NCR has become too costly for Maruti kind of factories and they should move to under developed areas (plenty of them in this large country!), with these reports.. In the end, this kind of arbitration only can keep the companies (and the country) happy!
