Globalization and subsequent changes are affecting all national economies irrespective of whether it is a transitional, controlled, socialist, or market economy. The result of this change is a paradigm shift in the employment structure of most of the countries. A common trend observed worldwide is that employment is moving away from traditional agriculture to industry and more to services. This volume makes an attempt to evaluate the employment scenario in different sectors of Indian economy after the reforms period. It also makes a comparative study of employment scenario between Gujarat, one of the developed states, and the country as a whole. Employment intensity of economic growth with focus on rural transformation, social security, quality and employability, survival of marginalized labouring poor and social income throws light on the realistic scenario. Retail boom, establishment of SEZs and SIRs and social security schemes like MGNREGA have suggestive thrusts in the domain of employment and consequences such as migration and their effects on society and culture. printed Pages: 320.
