Agricultural Workers’ Struggle in Asia (2010)

Asia Monitor Resource Centre

Asian Labour Update, Issue 74, Jan-Mar 2010, 36 pages

Asia holds the large majority – about 70% – of the world total of agricultural workers. This amounts to 700 million agricultural workers. Their working conditions are far from homogeneous, but most often they work in precarious conditions, and unlike the norm in urban workplaces, the labour is often family labour, involving children as well as women and men, and their living is subsidized by their own labour – i.e., the wages alone are not enough for subsistence. Millions of these workers are among the world’s billion chronically hungry. AMRC and their guest writers from different Asian countries documented their stories.
