Don’t let migrant workers beg for wages become a “reserved program” before the Annual Spring Festival

2022-07-29 0 By

For the nearly 290m migrant workers, getting money for a good year is one of the most modest aspirations.However, as the year draws to a close, some media have found clues provided by channels such as the National government affairs Service platform that there are still many migrant workers in the field of construction engineering who are worried about their “salary”.Although some projects have been shut down but also stay at the site for wages, some of the ground, hoping for workers before the Spring Festival for their own to respond to the wages.In recent years, notable achievements have been made in controlling wage arrears and protecting the legitimate rights and interests of rural migrant workers.But in reality, when it comes to the Chinese New Year, there are still migrant workers in order to get back their wages and worry, and even to beg for wages and can not return home, and even some individual migrant workers, 2020 wages are still in arrears.The formation of the problem of unpaid wages of migrant workers is complicated.But the top priority is to protect the migrant workers who are in arrears as soon as possible to get back their wages and return home for the Spring Festival.In this regard, local labor supervision and other departments should efficiently accept the feedback of every migrant worker, and actively follow up and coordinate.Here, in particular, more initiative is needed.If some migrant workers give feedback repeatedly, it is not only “running errands” for migrant workers, but also indirectly conniving at unpaid workers.Regulatory departments take the initiative to act, take the initiative to serve, take the initiative to support, migrant workers can be removed from the repeated rush.In fact, at the Executive meeting of The State Council held at the end of last year, it was reaffirmed that we will severely punish unpaid wages in accordance with laws and regulations, notify and hold accountable public officials who are derelict in their duties, and earnestly safeguard the legitimate rights and interests of rural migrant workers.In other words, the management of unpaid wages has long been included in the assessment of the regulatory authorities. Not only the maliciously defaulting on the payment of “blood and sweat money” to migrant workers will be punished, but also public officials who fail to perform their duties will be held accountable.Ensuring that rural migrant workers are paid in full and on time is a major issue concerning the basic livelihood of their families.But in reality, this vulnerable group’s voice and sense of existence are not very strong.This has also become a social potential reason why they are vulnerable to wage arrears and difficult to be treated fairly.This reality determines the protection of migrant workers’ legitimate rights and interests, and requires the support of external supervision and supervision.All localities and departments should devote enough energy to this aspect and take it as a major event to safeguard the bottom line of people’s livelihood, so as to completely change the “weak” plight of migrant workers in their rights.In recent years, with the issuance of a series of documents, such as The Regulations on Guaranteeing wage Payment for Migrant Workers, Implementation Rules for The Management of Special Wage Accounts for Migrant Workers in the Field of Engineering Construction, and Regulations on Wage Guarantee for Migrant Workers in the field of Engineering Construction, laws and regulations governing unpaid wages of migrant workers have been constantly improved.However, media investigation found that relevant systems need to play a further role in practice, especially in the special account for migrant workers’ wages, audit, performance guarantee and other aspects, there are problems such as system implementation is not in place.This shows that once we have a clear system of laws and regulations, we need to address the “pain points” of implementing policies and regulations in a down-to-earth manner and in a timely manner.Investigators have found that a prominent hidden danger that causes migrant workers’ wages to be in arrears — illegal subcontracting and subcontracting still exist.This is mainly related to the early stage of the bidding process of the standard caused by, and the labor supervision department because of the early stage can not intervene in the supervision, can only be late to clean up the “mess”.This reminds us that the governance of unpaid wages should have a “chess game” thinking and run through the whole process of the whole project construction in advance, rather than relying on labor supervision departments to help migrant workers beg for wages after unpaid wages have occurred.A common embarrassment for migrant workers is that the more they work, the more they may be owed.This also tells us that we should adopt a zero-tolerance approach to the governance of unpaid wages. We should supervise the whole process and only intervene when the “snowball” gets bigger, which will inevitably result in twice the result with half the effort.The Ministry of Human Resources and Social Security stated that “we will strive to achieve basically no wage arrears for migrant workers by 2020”.At present, we should not only accelerate the “old debts” of unpaid wages, but also timely upgrade the prevention system of wage arrears of migrant workers.In the past one or two years, real estate and other key construction fields have witnessed industrial reshuffle. In terms of preventing wage arrears of migrant workers, all localities and departments should take precautions and simultaneously promote the cleaning up of the “focus” and “hidden rules” that cause wage arrears of migrant workers.It is a platitude that migrant workers owe wages, but the more intractable the problem, the longer it takes to solve it.We need to ensure that rural migrant workers pay their salaries safely during the Spring Festival, and stop making asking for their salaries a “reserved program” before the Spring Festival every year.(This article is from thepaper.cn.
