  2. parag says:

    Even after that salaries are peanuts. This is probably the factory staff.

    Looks like they are rectifying the problem with under paid staff issue, unions must be behind this.

    Perhaps they are afraid the educated and experienced staff will move to competition, especially when will notice bad standing and figures. Besides Nokia is closing factories so, can’t move anything elsewhere. Lack of options, vulnerability and lack of vision for future or possibilities restricted only to small area. So market just use it.

    Coming from Chennai, 7k to 21k within a flash is a good thing actually!

    Chennai is a expensive place. I wonder how they were managing with Rs 7000. Rs 21000 sounds better. However I think it’s for support staffs like house keeper and office boys. No technical person would like to work for Rs 21000, not even freshers.
