Workers in Agribusiness: Profile, Images, Recruitment, Mobility, and Occupations.
Taylor, Lee, Ed.; Leagans, J. Paul, Ed.
Designed and conducted by a team of professors and research associates at New York State College of Agriculture, this study focuses on five primary areas of concern: (1) profile of firms and workers, (2) images of agribusiness work, (3) recruitment, (4) occupational mobility, and (5) agribusiness occupations and projections. Findings reveal that agribusiness workers are still often self-employed in a predominantly employee society. Although agribusiness workers are usually from rural backgrounds, the larger incorporated firms are less likely in their recruitment to prefer employees with rural backgrounds. The labor force exhibits low mobility, and most moves are from one job to another in the same area of industry. The greatest need for new agribusiness workers will be for unskilled labor in the processing sector. Methodology, tables, and questionnaires are appended. (GB)
