Labors at agriculture and construction have complained of not getting equal labor determined by Nepal Government. Labors working at tea, ginger and cardamom sector along with other construction sectors have complained of not getting equal wages. The problem was due to the lack of implementation of provision on labor act 2017 according to Rajendra Ghimire of QPEC Nepal, Ilam.

He added that disabled labors during the construction work have not received any treatment and there are discrimination on male and female wages.

Chairperson Saraswoti Chaulagain of Ilam Tea Garden Labor Federation said that labors working in tea garden are not getting wages as determined. She added that labors are facing difficulties due to the lack of public toilets in tea garden and in other area.

After the piling up of the labor issues, Ilam Municipality have provided insurance to the labor according to mayor Mahesh Basnet of Ilam.
