The construction industry is an essential contributor to the process of development. Roads, dams, irrigation works, schools, houses, hospitals, factories and other construction works are the physical foundation on which development efforts and improvement of living standards are established. The products of the construction industry are investment or capital goods. Thus construction industry has linkage with rest of the economy in terms of generation of output and employment. The construction sector has the largest number of unorganized labourers in India next only to the agricultural sector and almost half of the workforce is unskilled labourers with no occupational mobility. Often they face serious problems/constraints related to work, viz., lack of continuity, insecurity, wage and gender discrimination, gender and sexual harassment, unhealthy job relationship, lower wages, and poor job satisfaction. As the discrimination is more among the workers in construction industry, this study analyses the relationship between socio-economic conditions and work behavior of coolie workers of construction industry.
