Abstract: The working conditions, . Welfare facilities in the 2 units, . Employees' attitudes towards their job,. To make a comparative study between the work life of the employees in the 2 units, and. To make suggestions for improvement. As the study has been conducted in 2 units the findings in each case are given separately. Unit 1 :Twenty respondents fall within the age group of 26-35 years. Twenty-three respondents have put in service between 3-9 years. Twenty-four respondents were illiterate. The prime source of labour supply is co-workers and relatives. Twenty-nine respondents drew wages between Rs.200 -Rs.300 per month. Unit 2 : Twelve respondents were in the age group of 26-30 years. , Fifteen respondents had put in a service of 3-6 years. Twenty-eight respondents were illiterate. The main method of obtaining new employees is through existing employees. Eighteen respondents earned between Rs.200 -Rs.250 per month whereas another 10 earned between Rs.251 -Rs.300 per month. In brief one can say that the units are primitive and , traditional, both as regards the actual physical layout of the factories and the management practices. The labour employed comes from a rural background 'not very much exposed to urban life and living. It is mostly illiterate. In the co-operative unit the employees were quite submissive and docile. The pace of work is exceptionally high in these units. Child labour is employed in both the units in con-contravention of legal provisions.
