Problem

Arrested development of labour potential

Nature:
The basic employment of the majority of people living in Third World villages is generally limited to family farming; however this work is cyclical, leaving frustrating gaps of non-working time. Much of the potential working force among many women is tied to family affairs which also do not fully employ them. Technically trained residents must find work in cities, for without new business and industry villages have minimal need for such skills; this creates a skilled-labour drain from the community, and the large group of trained people necessary if they are to have a school and new development cannot be generated. As long as small family farming remains as the only realistic type of work in the community, villagers will continue to feel the frustration of restrictive and unprofitable labour.
