Industries keen on return of migrant workers.

Published: November 26, 2020

Local industrialists are feeling the absence of migrant workers who left the city when the lockdown was announced and are now scouting for talent and labour. However, some of the industrial units that maintained contact with their trained workforce, have brought some of their former employees back. Almost eight months after the lockdown came into effect on March 25, 2020, to curb the spread of COVID-19, the manufacturing sector is gaining steam but is far from reaching normalcy. Suresh Kumar Jain, Secretary, Mysore Industries’ Association, said that the workforce is one of the issues while the lack of adequate orders is another. However, most factories are functioning at 60% to 70% of their installed capacity and are bracing for new orders as the economy gains traction.
