A Spinning Mill worker, Gomathi Subha, 15 years, has been working since 2018, soon after she dropped out from class 9th. Working in the Auto Coner department, she is used to working on all three shifts, which often extends into the night. More than 350 people work at her workplace per shift. Soon after nation-wide lockdown was announced in India, her mill also shut down leaving her without job. While she received only 19 days salary in March, no salary was paid for April. With no income, her parents have to depend on wages from agriculture, which is itself facing crisis due to lack of rain.
