INTERRELATIONSHIPS AMONGST FARM LABOUR MANAGEMENT VARIABLES AND FACTORS AFFECTING FARM LABOUR REMUNERATION

The purpose of this paper is to conduct an exploratory analysis of certain observable measures associated with farm labour management and to examine factors affecting farm labour remuneration. Data were collected in the Lions River, Lower Tugela and Elliot magisterial districts during January 1987. A principal components analysis extracted a factor common to measures of positive farmer attitude, called a "progressive labour management index", which implied that farmers who use labour training facilities also provide incentive schemes, give generous leave allowances and would consider employing an African farm manager. A regression analysis is used to determine factors affecting remuneration levels. A principal component which extracts 67.4% of variation in remuneration is used as the dependent variable. Variables tested included labourer training, years work experience, farmer's attitude and farm type. Training and years work experience were significant in all three areas and positively correlated with remuneration.
