Impact on Development of Rural Employment and Labour Problems. Seminar Group 5.
Nalson, J. S.
The meanings of rural development and the impact on development of rural employment and labor problems are discussed. The influence on the interaction of rural development and rural employment and labor problems of the following are considered: the objectives of rural development in a particular country or region, objectives which are not necessarily mutually compatible; types of development--economic, social, and/or political; stages of development--from subsistence agriculture through small-scale to large-scale non-agricultural industries; approaches to development--a variety from free-enterprise planning to controlled free-enterprise planning to centrally determined regional planning; and institutions and organizations of development. Types of rural employment and labor problems relative to development are considered from the standpoint of problems of population structure, problems of underemployment and under-capitalization, problems of acquisition of skills and knowledge, problems of resistance to and adjustment to change, problems of time scheduling, and general problems of social relationships between "locals" and "incomers." The contrasts and convergencies between small-scale family-based enterprise and large-scale organizations, relative to the interaction of development and rural employment and labor problems, are also considered.
