As a company owner, you want your employees to earn enough to make a decent living so they can provide for themselves and their families."


"Where quality meets equality"

At SAMVEGA we are proud to say we work with one of the best in the business when it comes to employee wages and ethical standards. Work+Shelter surpasses all the rules of Fair Trade. Not only do they open bank accounts for their employees, but they also register them in the Indian Government system of PF & ESI which sets forth wage and labour standards according to workers’ skill level.

Women at WORK+SHELTER are paid significantly more than the industry average, including 5x or more what they could be earning elsewhere.

That's not all

In addition to a monthly salary, they are given:

  • An attendance incentive
  • A tax free allowance for housing and transport
  • Paid leave
  • Holidays
  • Gratuity - which accrues for each month of employment in a tax-sheltered savings account, redeemable after 5 years working with WORK+SHELTER.
