    ste artigo analisa a remuneração, a qualificação e características do emprego das pessoas ocupadas em empreendimentos cuja atividade principal é a cultura da cana-de-açúcar, a produção de açúcar e/ou a produção de álcool, no período de 2002 a 2006. Considera-se o conjunto de todas as pessoas ocupadas nessas atividades e destaca-se aqueles que são empregados (assalariados). Compara-se o nível de rendimento das pessoas empregadas em diversas lavouras: cana-de-açúcar, arroz, soja, café, mandioca, milho etc. são apresentados resultados para o Brasil como um todo, para as regiões norte-nordeste e centro-sul e para o estado de São Paulo. Verifica-se que a remuneração dos empregados na cultura da cana cresceu no período analisado, acompanhando o crescimento do salário mínimo real. Comparando a remuneração e as características dos empregados na cana e em outras lavouras, verifica-se que a segunda remuneração mais elevada é a dos empregados na cana-de-açúcar.---------------------------The paper analysis the earnings and other characteristics of employment in sugar cane crops and in sugar and alcohol industries in Brazil, from 2002 to 2006, considering either all occupied persons or only employees.
