There's no such thing as free housing for hired agricultural workers

Abstract

One-quarter of hired agricultural workers live in housing that is provided without rent. whereas few workers in other industries are provided with rent-free housing as part of their employment compensation. Workers who live in rent-free housing are paid more than comparable agricultural workers. possibly reflecting the low-quality and isolation of such housing.
