MACIEL, Maria Regina Alves; FONSECA, Alysson Rodrigo; BRAGA, Francisco Assis  e  CORGOZINHO, Batistina Maria de Souza. Socioeconomic characterization of the temporary worker of the sugar-cane industry in Lagoa da Prata, Minas Gerais, Brazil. Soc. nat. (Online) [online]. 2011, vol.23, n.2, pp.335-343. ISSN 1982-4513.  http://dx.doi.org/10.1590/S1982-45132011000200015.

The sugar and alcohol industry in the patterns which presents itself in the Brazilian reality has always produced great economic, environmental and social impacts, some of them identified only nowadays. In that sense, the constitution of the temporary worker, the cane cutter and generation of employments is stressed. The work conducted about these aspects was intended to characterize some socioeconomic variables relative to the temporary worker of the sugar cane industry which exists in the town of Lagoa da Prata/MG. Through a documental exploratory research work of quantitative and descriptive nature we seek to characterize the socioeconomic profile of those temporary works of the sugar cane agroindustry. The information which contributed towards the identification of that profile were obtained from the only sugar cane enterprise which acts in the town and in the record of the workers in the databank of the Lagoa da Prata rural workers' syndicate. The results point out that most of the temporary workers of the sugar alcohol sector is migrant, constituted mainly of young men com incomplete primary education and non-syndicalized. The majority presence of young people stands out the correlation between physical aptitude and the muscular strength demanded by cane-cutting. The greatest presence of the seasonal migrant worker and not of the local worker is related to the low wage paid, associated to the work regarded as heavy and stressful That worker is chiefly of the male gender for being the majority of the labor offered and for being regarded as carrier of better physical conditions for the doing of the demanded work.
