There is so much garbage about alleged “jobless growth” in India that this is a nice antidote. It shows how the booming textile sector in Punjab is running out of workers. The firms are raising wages, improving conditions, seeking to entice local women to seek work outside the home, and sending recruiters to remote parts of Orissa to seek new workers. All of this is because of capitalism. Demand is growing and the usual flow of poor workers from Bihar is now going elsewhere. Poor Biharis have a choice, so they are not all coming to Punjab. This is good news.
