Abstract:
Floriculture sector attracts considerable attention concerning worker’s profile due to inclusive potential of worker’s employment. The present study was conducted in three districts (i.e. Fatehabaad, Hisar, Panipat) of Haryana state with the objective to study the socio economic and personal profile of the floriculture workers. Two floriculture units were selected from each district using simple random sampling technique and all the workers working in selected floriculture units were selected to study the socio economic and personal profile. Results reveal that women’s participation was more than men in floriculture units. Almost all of the respondents belonged to Hindu religion (97.06%) and majority (52.94%) of the respondents belonged to scheduled caste category. Results also showed that the lack of availability of employment for educated people leads them to work as labor class.
