TEMP WORKERS OR MIGRANT LABOUR

Was going through today's ET Chennai Edition where there was an article on Temp Workers.

I was struck by the similarity between temporary workers and migrant labourers.

Both are ununionised and don't have any benefits ( other than the usual statutory benefits )and no scope for career growth.

Typically exploited and get no respect from co - workers.

So what is in it for them other than the pay ?
