Labor market plays a key role in determining employment and income levels in rural areas. While agriculture cannot be expected to absorb all of the rural labor force, its direct contribution to the generation of employment, including wage employment and its indirect contribution through greater diversification of the economy, are critical. There are more workers in waged employment in agriculture today than at any time. In other words, as the agricultural sector is undergoing a process of concentration of ownership, leading to fewer and bigger farms with a higher number of waged workers- as opposed to a sector based on smaller production units and self-employed farmers-waged workers become central to agricultural production.
Agricultural workers maintain the quality of farms, crops and livestock by operating machinery and doing physical labor under the supervision of farmers, ranchers and other agricultural managers. Even though the agricultural workforce as a whole is shrinking as more and more small farmers leave the land, the number of waged agricultural workers is growing in most regions of the world.
