Most characterizations of employment patterns in rural areas of Guatemala focus on the “head of household,” while overlooking the diverse job activities of other members of the household. The study not only addresses a population that is often understudied but also provides a longitudinal perspective to understand job switching and youth ideas of a “good” and “better” job.
This study was conducted with funds from National Science Foundation SBS 0548481, 2006–2009. I thank James Jaccard for statistical assistance and Linda Asturias de Barrios for helpful feedback throughout the project.
