Anganwadi workers continue actions in India

Following on from the ground breaking victory earlier this year by the Anganwadi workers in and around New Dehli, many other similar rural health workers have been taking action to increase their wages and better their conditions. In Odisha state in Eastern India, this week the state government has promised to raise the wages of Anganwadi workers by 50%, as well as make other improvements. In the south of the country in Tamil Nadu, while Anganwadi workers recently won a pay increase, they are still unhappy with their conditions. In the north eastern state of Rajasthan on the other hand, Anganwadi workers are still fighting to get a better deal from their state government.
