Livelihood Security of Migrated Farm Labours during COVID-19 Lockdown: Evidence from North Karnataka Region
During the COVID-19 pandemic, migrant workers encountered a number of obstacles. As a result of the country’s lockdown, millions of migrant workers have lost their jobs, income, and food. The response of migrant labour to livelihood security during the covid-19 outbreak was explored in North Karnataka. This study looked into the alternative employment options available to migrant workers who went home to avoid the outbreak. The purpose of this study is to apply logistic regression and path analysis to see what factors influenced agricultural migrant households’ livelihood security when they returned home following the COVID-19 pandemic lockdown. The factors impacting livelihood security, according to the results of logistic regression, were family size, household income, and income from non-agriculture, dependency ratio, migrating reason, and average age of migrants. This study looks at the socioeconomic conditions of migrant workers as well as the factors that affect their capacity to earn a living.
