CARDEILLAC GULLA, Joaquín et al. Flexibilización y feminización de la mano de obra en la fase agraria de la citricultura de Uruguay. Mundo agrar. [online]. 2020, vol.21, n.48, pp.152-152. ISSN 1515-5994.

In Uruguay, since the beginning of the 21st century, together with the growth of agro-industrial export complexes, we have attended to changes in the organization of work and in the ways of hiring personnel. This paper analyses, using data from official statistics, the increase in the female labour force in the agricultural phase of citriculture, with emphasis on the processes of day labour. On the other hand, through the use of qualitative tools, it gives an account of the meaning given by business actors to the process of feminization of the labor force and increase of labor intermediation.

Keywords : Agricultural Labor Markets; Labor Demand; Working Conditions; Feminist Economics.
