A Study on Working Conditions of Women Beedi Workers at Aralvoimozhi Town Panchayat of Kanniyakumari District
In the unorganized sector, beedi manufacturing provides employment opportunities, particularly for the women in Aralvoimozhi of Tamil Nadu. Since beedi work is undertaken at home without basic facilities, all the household members, including children, are exposed to the hazards of inhaling tobacco smell. The most common problem experienced by them was backache, eyesore, rickets, thyroid and tuberculosis, and throat infection.
