Pakistan's daily wage workers struggle

Little faith put in politicians amid weakening currency and much more expensive goods and services.

    As campaigning for Pakistan's general election ends, one of the biggest issues that will affect the vote on Saturday is the economy.

    Inflation is rising, the currency is weakening and goods and services are becoming much more expensive. But Pakistan's daily wage workers, who have no rights and benefits, continue to struggle as they have done for decades.

    Previous governments have tried to help through subsidies. However, the workers have given up on their politicians.
