ROSATI, Germán. Two dimensions of the operating logics of an agricultural labor market: levels and forms of remunerations in the cotton harvest (Chaco, 1990-2013). Poblac. soc. [online]. 2015, vol.22, n.2, pp.61-99. ISSN 1852-8562.

This paper tries to analyze and reconstruct some aspects concerning the functioning of the labor force market in the cotton harvest in the province of Chaco (Argentina). It will focus specifically on the forms of payment and their evolution comparing manual and mechanical harvesting. In this regard, it enquires into the transformations and the continuities produced in the wages system after harvest mechanization. It also intends to show that several characteristics (payment by the piece, evolution and level of wages, etc.) remained constant regardless of the harvesting method (manual or mechanical).

Keywords : Cotton harvest; Chaco; Wages; Labor market.
