Socio-Economic Problems of Migrant Workers: A Micro-Level Study of Migrated Unskilled Labour to Hyderabad City
Abstract: My research work is on the micro-level study of construction workers where I am trying to understand the micro level aspects of their migrant society. As the name suggests this is the smallest of the levels of society. Micro level groupings are more intimate societies that many humans will automatically identify with first. However, the complexity of this small group is that within the larger levels of society there are still smaller micro levels that make them up. The micro level deals with the daily actions and interactions of people in society. It examines the social roles that we take on within society as well as how we react to society and understand it. At this more intimate level the focus is on how people think within society opposed to their behaviour. Micro level study of society hones in on the smallest elements that create the idea of what a society is, the norms and behaviours that make it recognizable as a its own society. Rituals, socialization, segregation of activities and sanctions are all indicators as to how one should interact within a society. They are the guidelines that mentally tip us off as to the type of micro level society we are in.
