Migrant workers demand incentives for dollars brought to SL

The Sri Lankan migrant workers have demanded the incentives entitled to them for the dollars they had brought to Sri Lanka.

The matter has been informed to the authorities in writing as well.

Calling in a briefing yesterday (27), the Shramabhimani Jathika Peramuna movement reminded the policy decisions which the government of Sri Lanka has taken with regard to migrant workers, including the importation of a motor vehicle for an annual remittance of US$ 100,000 and housing with a land for an annual remittance of US$ 50,000.

Condemning the decision, All Ceylon Middle East Service Union member Ranjith Nanayakkara emphasisesd that none of the migrant workers are of the capacity to remit such an amount per year. The government is speaking of incentives which have never been granted to the migrant workers, he added.

The government of Sri Lanka continues to steal their money, alleged Treasurer of the All Ceylon Middle East Service Union Indika Jayawardena. He demanded that the incentives entitled to the migrant workers be assured in written format.
