Nepal has made notable socio-economic progress in the past decade, reducing absolute poverty rate from 42 per cent in 1995/96 to 23.8 per cent in 2013. The Nepali labour force grew at the rate of 2.6 percent per annum during the same period. The total labour force is 15.1 million (2013), the annual addition to the labour force is approximately 500,000. Unemployment is much higher in urban areas than in rural areas. More than 90 per cent of the economically active population is involved in the informal economy. This means salaries below the minimum wage, no emploment security, lack of access to public
benefits, little protection against abuse from their employers, and bad working conditions. Social protection for workers is one of the emerging issues in Nepal.
