Migrants who returned to work earned 5 times more: Study

Migrant workers who returned back after the first lockdown to their work in cities earned five times more than those who stayed back, and last year’s lockdown affected women more, a study by Yale University revealed. Researchers tracked more than 5000 thousand migrant workers from north India and Central India from April 2020 to February 2021.

The survey showed that only 45 percent of the women workers returned to their urban work location. In comparison, 55 percent of men returned to their workplaces and only 25 percent of them had no income for one week in February.

This survey was conducted over the phone by researchers from Yale University and the Inclusion Economics India Centre at KREA University.

Apart from that, the survey showed that men workers managed to earn up to 90 per cent of their pre-pandemic income. But the women had only managed to get 72 per cent of their pre-pandemic earnings.

On the other hand, the survey showed that those male workers who stayed home only managed to get 23 per cent of their pre-pandemic salary and the situation of female workers is even worse, they only reached 13 per cent of their pre-pandemic salary.
