Abstract:
The construction sector in India has the largest number of unorganized labourers next to the agricultural industry. The women engaged in this construction sector have no occupational mobility and face problems like wage differential, harassment at workplace, unsafe working condition, no job security, etc. Moreover they have low level of job satisfaction as they are not promoted, do the same strenuous work, and are not paid accordingly. Despite these problems, they continue to work to support their family. The present paper attempts to identify the issues and challenges the women workers face at the workplace.
