#HumansOfDemonetisedIndia: My name is Stella. I’m a fish vendor at Shangumugham, Trivandrum, Kerala. I’ve been selling fish for the past 27 years, and never before have I gone back home after a day’s business with any leftovers. But now things are different. With the scrapping of Rs 500 and Rs 1000 notes, my daily sales have nosedived from a decent Rs 15,000-20,000 to a pitiable Rs 3000.. I’m 60 years old. Will I be forced to look for another job at this age?

    Already there is a slow down in employment in the past few years. This policy has further not only allowed down employment but even the employed are losing jobs or trying for alternative jobs especially in the unorganized sector. Also , they are trying to do two or three jobs at a time to earn sufficiently to make both ends meet.
