 Poor classified as rural poor and urban poor. Rural poor involved in agriculture. They  don’t have land, lived in a mud house and some of don’t even get 2 meals of the day. Urban poor are those who migrated in search of job. These urban poor get work on a daily basis or contract basis. But wages which they get are subsistence wages only. Poor have no right to fight for their wages.
