THE WAGE EFFECTS OF SEASONALITY IN AGRICULTURE

Elizabeth Frazao

No 270187, 1988 Annual Meeting, August 1-3, Knoxville, Tennessee from American Agricultural Economics Association (New Name 2008: Agricultural and Applied Economics Association)

Abstract: The wage effects of seasonal demand for labor in agriculture are analyzed for male heads of households in five rural villages in Guatemala. Controlling for human capital characteristics, seasonal jobs pay 57 percent more than non-seasonal jobs. Controlling for job characteristics reduces this wage differential.
