The coping strategies and livelihoods of farm workers

Of necessity, farm workers who are jobless, landless and without homes in communal areas have tried various coping strategies. Piece-work on the farms where they live and on adjacent farms is often temporary, insecure and badly paid. They also earn some income from informal trading in agricultural produce and second-hand clothes, and in craft materials in local markets. These activities should be supported by setting up market stalls and small depots for buying and resale in nearby towns and communal areas.
