of total workingpopulation of Asian countries are employed/ engaged directly or indirectlywith informal unorganized sectors specially small cottage and agriculturesectors. Where people working do not have entitlement of social securityschemes. These sectors are directly or indirectly involved in the export toother countries. It is very disappointing that no organization has till nowcomes across to solve this to get the poor people for their social securitybenefit. They do not want any thing free but there should beaninternational law to protect the interest of social security for their oldage/disability/illness/unemployment etc.
http://members.tripod.com/~sadashivan_nair/unorganisedsectorandlackofsocialsecurity/I give a small example as if a person from informal sectorMeets an accident/ gets ill for long time/ remains unemployed/old age whenunable to work etc.
Under these circumstances person has no alternate forfood/shelter. This is all due to lack of involving this informal sector tothe mainstream of UNO or ILO. Old aged people percentage is growing everyday. This issue has to be treated human rights issue.It is only the international organization that can force any country sayinglook if you want to be member of world trade organization (W.

And Asia is getting day by daymodernandEuropeanized children may not want oldies to stay with them as this fashionhas begun in India also.
