This study analyses the employment status of agricultural laborers in Bathinda district of Punjab. It presents the major activities of agricultural laborers in farm and non-farm sector. The lack of employment opportunities in agriculture during off season compelled the agricultural laborers to seek alternative employment sources like construction work, National Rural Employed Guarantee Act (NREGA) etc. In spite of it, the harsh reality is that the condition of Agriculture Labors (especially non-regular) is miserable.
