Abstract:
Unorganised labour market constitutes a vast segment in any society, whether it is in developed or developing countries. India is an emerging economy with 460.43 million workers in 2011-12. Unorganised workers suffer from access to imperfect information and not fully aware of their legal rights. This led to the bad condition of work like long working hours, hazardous nature of work, absence of safety conditions and above all poor wage rates, 93 % of India's workforce is working as unorganised workers have not been benefited growth. Kerala constitutes a major share of unorganised workers in the country. It is identified that this sector is severely exploited in the workplace in different forms. The proposed study is to discuss the issues associated with the working condition of unorganised workers in the urban areas of the Ernakulum district of Kerala. The study also suggests viable solutions to address these issues.
