Itinerant Worker

A person who moves from place to place to find a job. An itinerant worker is not confined to a single place and often does not own property. Itinerant workers are most common in sectors with a large number of temporary jobs or a high degree of seasonality. For example, an itinerant worker may be an agricultural worker who moves between two regions with slightly different growing seasons. The number of itinerant workers may increase during recessions or other times with low levels of job security.
