Data from surveys of employment of women from farm households in 1973 and 1984 were used to investigate part-time work by married women in Matsuto, Ishikawa in the Hokuriku area and Kawagoe, Saitama, in the South Kanto area of Japan. The part-time employment followed was mainly in the manufacturing industries and was near to the place of residence. Two-thirds of these employees were absent during the busiest periods of farm work and one-third worked the same length of time as full-time workers. Conditions, including annual income, paid holidays and social insurance, were worse for part-time workers than for full-time workers.
