Condition of the workers under Apprentice Act

The Central Government has prepared a draft law called Code of Industrial Relation to replace several existing laws — the Industrial Disputes Act, the Trade Unions Act and the Industrial Employment (Standing Orders) Act. A part of these attacks on the working class the government has amended the Apprentice Act in November 2014 to legalise the practice of super-exploiting young workers without regularising their jobs, so that young workers can be made to work for years on end without minimum wages, leave, or any social security benefits. Further the National Employability Enhancement Mission (NEEM) has been launched to enable the capitalists to replace regular workers with trainees and apprentices.

The workers and their unions have been fighting against the sustained attack by the capitalists through various means.

Letter to Editor: US imperialism is the most ferocious enemy of humanity

The in-depth article entitled `US imperialism is the most ferocious enemy of humanity' carried in the September 16-30, 2018 issue of MEL is significant. It brings out the essence of this dominant feature of our era in no uncertain terms, and also arms the working class with a plan to take the work of revolution forward. It is important to know what the precise modus operandi of the imperialists is at this time and also to discover where the chinks in the arms of imperialism is in order to break the impasse. As in the era of Lenin, the present era is also one where imperialism is ripe and rife with contradictions, and it is important also to know where it is weakest so that the weakest link in the chain may be broken.
