ROSATI, Germán. An approach to labor trajectories of mechanical and manual workers in cotton harvest: Chaco, Argentina. Trab. soc. [online]. 2018, n.30, pp.197-218. ISSN 1514-6871.

This paper asks about the place of waged workers in the agrarian social structure. The case of cotton harvesters in Chaco state is studied. Particularly, it analyzes manual and mechanical worker´s labor trajectories (stability, sector of activity, qualification, etc. of job positions). These trajectories constitute an indicator of the worker´s function in social structure, as they allow an approach to the different forms of labor market competition. The main empirical source is a set of interviews to workers in which labor histories are reconstructed.

Keywords : Labor trajectories; Chaco; Cotton.
