In what ways is a permanent and regular job different from a casual job? Discuss.
Regular and permanent job is completely secured and regular employees receives fixed income. Regular or permanent workers attend same office or factory regularly. Their work is clearly identified. They get a regular salary. Unlike casual workers they will not be asked to leave if the company or factory does not have much work. Their job-time is defined and they also get paid holidays and other benefits from their employers.
Casual job, on the other hand is totally unsecured and there is no fixed income. Casual workers’ jobs aren’t permanent. If they complain about their pay or working conditions, they are asked to leave. There is no job security or protection is there is ill treatment. They are also expected to work for longer hours. Forget the additional benefits, they have not been provided even the basic amenities.

Read and discuss the following description of the living conditions of workers who come to the labor chowk.
Most workers that we find at the labor chowk cannot afford permanent accommodation and so sleep on pavements near the chowk, or they pay Rs. 6 a night for a bed at a nearby night shelter run by the Municipal Corporation. To compensate for the lack of security, local tea and cigarette shops function as banks, moneylenders and safety lockers, all rolled into one. Most workers leave their tools at these shops for the night for safekeeping, and pass on any extra money to them. The shopkeepers keep the money safely and also offer loans to laborers in need.NCERT Political Science - Social and Political Life-I
