Minimum Wage in India

Recently in India there was a labour union strike, where amongs other demands was the demand to increase the minimums wages through out the country to Rs. 15000 per month. In India each state or union territory has a range of minimum wage (i.e. different job / sector have different min. wage; that makes it more difficult for the government to implement). This visualization shows this range for different region and its comparison with Living Wage for year 2013 for the available states and UTs. Related visualization
