Short­age of labour in an econ­omy fac­ing pos­si­ble neg­a­tive growth shows labour mar­ket per­ver­sity. Or­gan­ised sec­tor labour laws make businesses look for un­or­gan­ised labour, and the lat­ter is given bare min­i­mum fa­cil­i­ties. That’s why mi­grants are flee­ing — the lock­down shat­tered their frag­ile life in­fra­struc­ture. We need flex­i­ble labour rules that en­cour­age em­ploy­ers to give more fa­cil­i­ties to more work­ers, and hire more. We have a small labour aris­toc­racy and a large pool of ex­ploited labour. That must end.
