Employment Security for the Unorganised Sector Workers in Karnataka
AbstractWe examine the extent of employment security faced by different occupational groups within the unorganized sector and analyse the factors influencing the same. Based on a large sample including agricultural, contruction and domestic workers in four districts in Karnataka, we find that the inter and intra-sectoral heterogeneity among these occupational groups have implications for the policies aiming at ensuring their employment security. A one-size-fits-all policy for the entire unorganized sector would be inadequate because it would fail to consider these differences and would not address the sector-specific needs of the workers.
