The present study is made an attempt to analyze the problems faced by the unorganized workers/labours and welfare measures adopted by their employer and government. Labour welfare means anything done for the comfort and improvement of the labour over and above the wages paid which is not a necessity of the industry.The basic purpose of labour welfare is to enrich the life of labour and keep them happy. Labourers spend most of their time at work. We know that they contribute to the infrastructural development of the country, which plays a very important role for the economic development. They reasonably feel that when they are at work place or in trouble/ problems, they are due to get something back from the employer or government.

• To keep families together; and
• To give children the chance to grow up healthy and secure.
