" What comes to the mind when one thinks of India? Or more specifically, Uttar Pradesh? Bustling cities with loads and loads of people, most of whom are on a marathon to earn a decent living. Witnessing such harsh realities pushed me to design an intervention to transform the skilled/unskilled labour market. My intent is simply to overcome asymmetric information to help workers connect with employers aligned with the idea of Decent Work and Economic Growth. "
Millennium Fellowship Project: Rozgaar
Rozgaar provides a single platform where an employer can review virtual profiles of daily wage workers and invite them directly for the job. Virtual profiles can be created by calling the helpline service which will be attended by me or my peers for manually creating them. A job notification will be sent to the daily wage worker via text message surpassing the dependency on a smartphone on the side of the employee.
