Best answer
  • Commercialization of agriculture led to the growth of migrant agricultural labour that circulated between their home villages and more prosperous areas.
  • Migrants were more easily exploited by the wealthy farmers and were usually not paid the minimum wages. 
  • These migrant workers were terms as’ footloose labour’ by Jan Breman. • Migration and lack of job security have created very poor working and living conditions for these workers.
