Abstract:
In this paper, the socio economic living situation of the migrant workers in Kerala have been analysed. The income before and after migration and nature of work have been considered for 100 migrant workers of Paippad Panchayat in Kottayam district of Kerala. Long distance migration Has been a trend in the migration to Kerala. Poor economic situation in native states along with lack of employment opportunities has been the motive behind the migration. High wages and better employment opportunities made them to choose Kerala. The study shows that migration has helped them to attain a better standard of living.
