It was time for European Commission and Council to wake-up and act on this issue, Zed, who is President of Universal Society of Hinduism, stressed.
Rajan Zed further said that this unfairness should not be acceptable in Europe which boasted of its fairness record. Reports suggested that some workers in Germany only received about three Euros per hour without any social protection and numbers of such low-paid workers might be around 7.5 million. It was below the poverty line of Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development, Zed added.
Zed urged His Holiness Pope Francis and other religious leaders of Europe to highlight this issue as religions told us to help and speak for the helpless.
