MLEOS (Migrant labor empowerment services)
Explain your idea in details:
An overwhelming 120 Million people or more are estimated to migrate from rural areas to urban labour markets, industries and farms. The power of the MNCs or the industries is so flexible that they can fire the workers anytime they want. So,these migrant workers are prone to constantly losing their jobs and living a stretch of days without one. This results in poverty and at the time they are not working they are considered as a liability to the country. The reason for them being unemployed maybe that they are tirelessly searching for a new one and not finding it. The transportation costs while searching also add up to the burden. Our idea is to create an app or a telecommunication service(for those who do not have one or can't operate them) with one end of the spectrum comprising the workers who are searching for jobs and the other end containing the industries or enterprises. The workers who lost their job can instantly avail our services and find a new one. The app/ telecommunication will be designed in such a way that the customers have a pick in what language they are comfortable in and proceed with the other steps. The design of the app will be simple so everyone can access it. The workers just have to fill in their name, age and the jobs they are willing/can do.The industries or enterprises which avail our services can put up job openings on the app and the workers can select one they can do. The hirer from the company will get a notification and they can either hire them or deny them based on the workers profile. For more information on the worker their phone numbers will also be available for the hirer to contact. The telecommunication services will work in the same way like that of the other companies.
Expected impact of your idea on sustainable development
Poverty, lack of local options and the availability of work else where become the trigger and the pull for rural migration respectively. Migrants form the largest part of India's vast unorganized work sector. Their entry into the labour markets is marked with several endemic disadvantages. Devoid of critical skills, information and bargaining power, migrant workers often get caught in exploitative labour arrangements that forces them to work in low-end, low-value, hazardous work. Lack of identity and legal protection accentuates this problem. The app will help overcome few of the disadvantages like loss of jobs, their homes, not receiving enough salary for their well being etc.The impact will be a vast difference compared to the situation of how everything looks like in the present.We are changing the natural rhythm of the processes of this system. Considering all the pros and cons, our app will help provide those people to have a stable living where the person can afford all the expenses and live happily with the amount left.By looking through all these, we can expect the reduction of poverty in our busy society. The social and economic growth of our country is mostly in the hands of these people as they make up a large part of the society. It will help the country in the path to achieving a status as a developed country. Our idea focuses on the following sustainable development goals: No poverty, Decent work and economic growth and Reduced inequalities. MLEOS will help workers be employed all year round and hence make them an asset to the country. In the end Citizens health and well being is only important for a country to develop.
Plans for implementation and sustainability
The business model of our idea can either be B2G or B2B.In case of B2G -the fundings for the implementation will be provided by the government and B2B - fundings will be the capital investment from our side. So,we will be cooperating and providing services to various companies in different fields. This is an indirect way of helping workers for finding appropriate jobs instantly. (The app will be designed in a way that it can be handled by anyone. The workers will be able to see a job opening in the green box and if the worker chooses to opt for it they can click on the green box. This makes the whole process easier. This saves time for the enterprises and the workers are employed every day.)
We are 15 years old, aspiring teenagers who are full of energy and are trying to bring a change in this prejudiced society. We are sure this is changing gradually due to the present advances across different fields.some people think from their perspective of mind and some from their heart but there arent many people who think using both of them for the need to change this world. Three of us have our own passions but the common passion we share is innovating. We believe in- No problem can be solved from the same level of consciousness that created it, said by the great scientist Albert Einstein. So we believe that anyone is capable of bringing a change,let it be big or small. Through this platform we are presenting our ideas and hope to make a small difference in the society.
