‘What has been the quality of jobs generated by Punjab’s urban unorganised establishments in an era of globalisation?’ is the central question addressed in this paper. It is argued that the unorganised establishments’ growth, under the conditions of exogenous technology, may be due to intensive and extensive usage of hired labour. Through secondary and primary data analysis, it is concluded that these unorganised establishments have generated a sufficiently large number of such jobs that may be characterized as of poor quality in terms of low earnings, limited upward mobility, unjust wage setting, uninformed job termination and low job satisfaction.
