KARACHI, April 11: Rights activists at a convention on Monday demanded that the government formulate a national policy for home-based workers (HBWs) and legislate to recognise them as workers so that they also benefited from various social welfare schemes of the government.



They were speaking at the first convention of the Home-Based Women Workers Federation, organised jointly by the Homenet South Asia, Labour Education Foundation and Homenet Pakistan at the Arts Council.
