Coping mechanism, Problems, workers, Migrants


Migration from different states to other states in India has now become so rampant. Due to that its impact is felt in every aspect of life. These migrant workers are spread across the width and length of the country. When they come to big cities, they have to face number of problems because of their inexperience in life style, communication, housing and standard of living. Migration is not merely the physical movements of individuals and groups; it involves a lot of strain in their social, economic, cultural and other aspect of life. Hence the investigator felt that there is a need to assess the problems faced by North Indian workers working in south India and the coping mechanism with those problems. The study objectives were to assess the problems faced by north Indian in south India and to associate the problems with selected demographic variables. Descriptive approach was used. The study subjects comprised of 100 construction workers of construction sites at Saveetha University campus were selected by simple random sampling technique. Among the workers 41% were in the age of 31-40 years, 64% were males and 36% were females. Out of 100 mothers, 27% of them faced mild problems, 70% of them had moderate problems and 3% faced severe problems. There was no association between the problems and selected demographic variables like age, sex, education and income.
