BERGER, Matías; JIMENEZ, Dora  and  MINGO, Elena. Those who left and those who stay: work and life conditions in tucuman´s migrant households. Trab. soc. [online]. 2012, n.19, pp. 0-0. ISSN 1514-6871.

In this article we analyze and try to understand the elements that condition and make possible temporary labor migrations of tucuman´s workers to Mendoza. This is an important question because temporary migrations to get a job implies a certain number of decisions and initiatives that brought about change and adaptation process's of domestic groups that are reflected in some reorganization which makes migration possible. Our interest is to analyze households as units that articulated labor strategies and economic participation of their memberships. Then, we propose to analyze the way domestic groups generates conditions that makes possible labor insertions or migration of household´s memberships   understanding that household organization makes more clear the connection between production and reproduction and conditions and conflicts between both spaces.

Keywords : Migrant workers; Households; Labor insertions.
