Chapter 17: Inequality regimes in food processing industries
In order to explore the long-term sustainability of food production it is necessary to examine the labour market practices of food and beverage organisations, many of which are multinational, particularly in relation to skilling and meanings and practices associated with recruitment, retention and training of workers. These organisations shape rural labour markets and therefore jobs available to local residents. This chapter gives specific attention to the gendering of the rural workforce and examines how organisations both gender rural labour markets and are shaped by gendered and classed practices associated with the places in which they are located.
