Poverty, Gender and Wage Labour in Rural Tanzania

Based on data from the Usambaras region the paper attempts to analyse the constraints on the supply of manual agricultural wage labour in Tanzania. The authors argue that the constraints on the expansion of agricultural wage labour have retarded the process of accumulation and have, therefore, had negative consequences for the welfare of the rural population as a whole. In particular, the analysis focuses on the welfare implications for women of restrictions on their ability to derive cash income from wage labour.
