Remembering Vadakara cigar workers who got bonus first

Vadakara: The cigar workers of Vadakara are the first set of workers to receive bonus in India. Though the sector itself has faded away, the new generation remember the historic event with pride this Onam season. It was in 1944 that the cigar makers of Vadakara began a strike for emoluments other than their wages and succeeded; each of them got 14 annas as bonus.
