Quick Reference

A wage labour-force that is not wholly dependent on the wage for economic subsistence. Typically this occurs where wage-workers retain access to land, working it themselves or via members of their family. The term also includes seasonal workers, who spend part of the year on peasant plots, and part working in the harvests for wages.
