ABSTRACT
Casual laborers are workers who have an explicit or an implicit contract of employment with companies which goes on for only a short period of time. The duration of the job is determined by the specific terms of the task to be carried out.
To acquire casual jobs by these laborers is quite laborer’s casuals are not guaranteed to work in one place. Theirs is to work in the company where they would get a job. Casuals are always at a risk of time wasting due to their mode of looking for these casual jobs.
This project would majorly be about these causals being able to get a job prior to their time of work with less struggle. Therefore, they would be able to register to the system with their details and the admins of the companies linked to the system give them jobs.
The project has used agile methodology coming up with a web platform, that is a website and USSD code for registration by casuals. The website would handle task definition, the casual’s lists categorized as per their residences and also all the necessary reports by the company admins. Data processing and analysis would also be done in the website. The USSD code would handle the registration of the casual website. The oriented architecture has also been used to allow for SMS gateways. After deployment the usability and functionality testing would be done.

Chapter 1: Introduction
1.1 Background
Casual workers or laborers are workers who have an employment contract which is not expected to continue for more than a short period of time. Contract duration is determined by the specific terms of employment or the kind of job to be carried outADDIN CSL_CITATION {"citationItems":[{"id":"ITEM-1","itemData":{"ISBN":"1780632479","author":[{"dropping-particle":"","family":"Lee","given":"Sangheon","non-dropping-particle":"","parse-names":false,"suffix":""},{"dropping-particle":"","family":"Eyraud","given":"François","non-dropping-particle":"","parse-names":false,"suffix":""}],"id":"ITEM-1","issued":{"date-parts":[["2008"]]},"publisher":"Elsevier","title":"Globalization, flexibilization and working conditions in Asia and the Pacific","type":"book"},"uris":["http://www.mendeley.com/documents/?uuid=ac1fc577-2ba9-44d1-80ed-94f593000923"]}],"mendeley":{"formattedCitation":"(Lee & Eyraud, 2008)","plainTextFormattedCitation":"(Lee & Eyraud, 2008)","previouslyFormattedCitation":"(Lee & Eyraud, 2008)"},"properties":{"noteIndex":0},"schema":"https://github.com/citation-style-language/schema/raw/master/csl-citation.json"}(Lee & Eyraud, 2008).These workers are usually paid on daily or operational rate basis. This makes them independent workers based on their specific circumstances of employment.
According to the International Confederation of private employment Agencies there are thirty-six million temporary workers and 7.7 million of these workers reside in Africa, this is in a survey that they did in 2012.Those workers work as labor brokers and are not entitled to one employer. This substandard form of employment has helped some people hold a firm holding as employers and created a created job for low living standard people in developing countries as employees. There has been an increase in casual laboring in developing and middle-income countries. Casual labor have not been the case in developed countries but with their reduction in in permanent employment jobs, it has led them to joining inADDIN CSL_CITATION {"citationItems":[{"id":"ITEM-1","itemData":{"ISBN":"1000256995","author":[{"dropping-particle":"","family":"Lansbury","given":"Russell D","non-dropping-particle":"","parse-names":false,"suffix":""},{"dropping-particle":"","family":"Wright","given":"Chris F","non-dropping-particle":"","parse-names":false,"suffix":""},{"dropping-particle":"","family":"Bamber","given":"Greg J","non-dropping-particle":"","parse-names":false,"suffix":""},{"dropping-particle":"","family":"Wailes","given":"Nick","non-dropping-particle":"","parse-names":false,"suffix":""}],"id":"ITEM-1","issued":{"date-parts":[["2020"]]},"publisher":"Routledge","title":"International and comparative employment relations: National regulation, global changes","type":"book"},"uris":["http://www.mendeley.com/documents/?uuid=7570655f-c425-40bd-bdf6-ae4476b55283"]}],"mendeley":{"formattedCitation":"(Lansbury, Wright, Bamber, & Wailes, 2020)","plainTextFormattedCitation":"(Lansbury, Wright, Bamber, & Wailes, 2020)","previouslyFormattedCitation":"(Lansbury, Wright, Bamber, & Wailes, 2020)"},"properties":{"noteIndex":0},"schema":"https://github.com/citation-style-language/schema/raw/master/csl-citation.json"}(Lansbury, Wright, Bamber, & Wailes, 2020).
These employer industries have always preferred casual labor because their work can be regularized into achievable milestones for budgeting and supervision purposes. Moreover, it has less implementation costs for instance most Kenyan companies and even in the united states of America do not have to pay for health and medical insurance for these laborers.
