Dear Dr Gubbi,

You wanted to bring Stay Order on Minimum Wage Notification Covering 20 Minimum Wage Notifications. Predominantly, the list belongs to the manufacturing sector. General knowledge of this sector tells us that employee cost against total cost varies from 6-15%. Therefore, if the minimum wages are raised, then what would be the impact on the employee cost? Have you done this study? On what basis do you say that this would be a "steep" increase?

My observations on Manufacturing Sector: - My observations show that there are two important costs in the manufacturing companies. One is inventory cost of the raw materials and another is inventory cost of the finished goods. Managing these two costs depends on how the company manages its supply chain. Mismanagement of the supply chain leads to huge blockage of the working capital. To manage the supply chain, it requires usage of mathematical and statistical tools or techniques of the Operations Research. Instead of taking these intellectual challenges, companies resort to chinchy tactics of not paying even minimum wages or raising objections when minimum wages are raised. Competitiveness can only be increased if principles of management are implemented and not by bearing grudge against the workers who are paid barest minimum.

In view of this, my request to you is to conduct a survey along side. Whichever organisation approaches you to include them in the stay order, ask them whether they have calculated these two cost scientifically and if not what is holding them back? Stay order is fine but scientific management cannot be pushed under the carpet.

Inventory Turnover Ratio is one single ratio that speaks volumes. This ratio shows the the coordination amongst various departments like Purchase, production and sales. It also shows the company's relationship their vendors, empowerment of the procurement personnel and so on. Notwithstanding all this, how many companies calculate this ratio scientifically? How many owners understand the significance of increase of this ratio even by a unit? Please conduct survey on this count also.

Dear Dr Gubbi,
This is my supplementary post.
While ignoring the worth of pound, Indian entrepreneurs' penchant for the fight for the pennies is well known. It is unfortunate to note that a legal firm of your stature is lending weight to fight for the pennies.
In contrast, look at the American entrepreneurs. They could build their industrial empires because they understood where the business lies. Today American companies could deeply penetrate in average individual's life the world over. Can you imagine life without MS Office, Google or Facebook? Certainly not! By developing such a product or service, they have forced the world to depend on them! This is because they did not restrict their worldview for the fight for the minimum but fight for the maximum.
When Indian entrepreneurs will learn to strive for maximum and when Indian lawyers will stop aiming to corner a penny by taking up the cause for the fight for the pennies?
I see remote chances!
