FARM LABOR IN THE UNITED STATES.
BISHOP, CHARLES E.
SEVEN ESSAYS EXAMINE THE REASONS AND PRESENT TABLEAUS OF DATA RELATIVE TO THE LOW PRODUCTIVITY OF SMALL FARMS COMPARED WITH LARGE FARMS, THE LOW FINANCIAL RETURNS OF FARM LABOR, AND THE MASS EXODUS OF FARM MANPOWER. THE CHARACTERISTICS, TRENDS, AND SOCIOECONOMIC SITUATION OF HIRED FARM LABOR DURING THE PERIOD 1947-1964 ARE PRESENTED. THE CHANGING TECHNOLOGY AND ITS RESULTANT FARM LABOR ADJUSTMENTS TO SEEK NON FARM EMPLOYMENT AND MULTIPLE JOB HOLDING, WHICH LEAD TO OCCUPATIONAL MOBILITY ARE DISCUSSED. SUGGESTIONS ARE MADE FOR RELATING FARM MANPOWER POLICY TO THE NATIONAL MANPOWER POLICY AND THE NATIONAL ECONOMIC GOALS.
