This has increased the concerns like economic, social and political migration of migrant workers particularly the unskilled ones from insufficient and lowered regions to find employment and living. Hence, migration is apprehended to be stimulated by the extent of social groups’ susceptibility thereby resulting in the susceptibility increase at the destination point. Migration has become a global phenomenon today. Movement for job is livelihood strategy in India. An unorganized sector plays a crucial role in providing job opportunities to the migrants.
