Farmhands

 

hired workers in capitalist agriculture. Part of the agricultural proletariat, farmhands either own a little land of their own or own no land at all. The only source of their livelihood is heavy labor for hire at pay that is considerably lower than that for other agricultural workers. Their existence is characterized by an extremely low standard of living.
