The Minimum Wage Act is an Act of Parliament concerning Indian 1st law that sets the minimum wage that must be paid to skilled and unskilled labors. However, to keep in mind an industry’s capacity to pay the constitution has defined a ‘fair wage.’
, Minimum wage is a payment, or among which is given to the employees/workers for the work(job) they have done. It is given according to the working condition/experience and type of work. The minimum wage is generally calculated on the basis of the number of ho. It can either be paid on a daily basis after the completion of work or together for all the working hours in a month

The wage and employment policies relating to the unorganized employees/ workers, particularly the issue of minimum wages paid to them has been a subject of considerable discussion among union leaders and labor experts. While minimum wage legislation has to a large extent been effective in providing protection to the workers in the organized sector, with time to time, this has not been the case with the unorganized workers, who remain largely outside the purview of minimum wage legislation.
