Abstract: The peculiarity of the local labor market in Hokkaido is that, affected by the industrial structure, a class of seasonal laborers was formed and is currently reproduced. So far, the farmers in paddy farming areas in Hokkaido have not worked generally in other industry than agriculture. Since the period of rapid economic growth, it is common for them to have a side job. The employment conditions are poor. Their wages are the level of day laborer, and the wages are below that of a standard workers. So, the farmers are going to convert their farming from rice to more labor intensive products such as vegetables to become full-time farmers again. But vegetable farming needs more labor than family workers in the busy working season. So seasonal laborers or part-time workers who are available in the local area, for example housewives in a coal-mining area, are employed by the vegetable farms. I call such a farm not an enterprise but "a family farm supported by hired farmworkers," because its income is low and dose not much exceed the day wages of hired farmworkers and day laborers.
