Also, the paper discusses about the labour rights, safe working conditions and ways to promote it. The last section of the paper discusses about the two indicators of the goal 8.8 which are deadly and non deadly activity sacred and unsettled person. Both of which have huge implications on SDG’s goals. Without human resource no goal can be achieved, hence it is important to protect labour rights and provide safe working environment to all the mortal, admit the unsettled workers, in specially women migrants, and those in unstable occupation.
