A hobo is a migrant worker or homeless vagrant, especially one who is impoverished. The term originated in the Western-probably Northwestern-United States around 1890. Unlike a "tramp", who works only when forced to, and a "bum", who does not work at all, a "hobo" is a traveling worker. The origin of the term is unknown. According to etymologist Anatoly Liberman, the only certain detail about its origin is the word was first noticed in American English circa 1890.
