Résumé
The number of Jordanians employed in the agriculture sector has steadily declined over the last several decades, particularly in low-skilled positions. In 2017, 3.3% of the formally employed Jordanian work force was employed in the sector, which compares to 6% in 1991. Capturing accurate statistics of the agriculture work force is, however, difficult and fails to capture informal work, including unpaid work done on family farms, usually by women and youth. The formal sector has come to rely on a large number of non-Jordanian workers. In a recent ILO assessment of the sector, employers estimated that close to 70% of their workforce was now Syrian. Egyptians accounted for the largest group of non-Syrian migrant workers.
