Seasonal Unemployment

Disguised unemployment

  • Occurs when people are not able to find work during some months of the year .
  • In case of disguised unemployment people appear to be employed
  • People dependent upon agriculture usually face seasonal unemployment.
  • This usually happens among family members engaged in agricultural activity.
  • There are certain busy seasons when sowing , harvesting , weeding and threshing are done.
  • The work requires the service of five people but engages eight people.
  • The rest of the months do not provide much work to the people dependent on agriculture.
  • The contribution made by the three extra people does not add to the contribution made by the five people . If three people are removed the productivity of the field will not decline .
