The in­dus­try has been fac­ing some chal­lenges in at­tract­ing youth to work in this sec­tor. There are a lot of rea­sons for this. Poor work­ing con­di­tions, low pay scales rel­a­tive to other ca­reers, poor or non-ex­is­tent man­power poli­cies and the preva­lence of un­scrupu­lous prac­tices all add to the seg­ment's woes. Im­prove­ment is ex­pected with re­gard to all th­ese now with a lot of in­vest­ments com­ing into the sec­tor be­cause of the growth of the ecom­merce busi­ness and in­crease in eco­nomic ac­tiv­ity across the coun­try.
