Global Nomads

Aren't global nomads really what precarious labour is moving towards? Ex-pats who move to where the work is, entire civilisations of people that move to say, one economic boom town to another. Just following large capital investment flows until they develop a region, reduce marginal returns, and then all move to the next fertile region. Isn't this precisely the same as nomadic following of seasonal agricultural produce based on rain patterns ?
