Friedemann-Sáchez (chronic disease outcomes research, Minneapolis Veterans' Administration Medical Center) investigates why women workers in the fresh-cut flower industry in Colombia remain employed for ten year or more if the working conditions are as deplorable, the pay as terrible, and the overall employment as exploitative as most research has claimed. The answer lies in how these workers challenge male domination in households by their wage income, property ownership, social networks, and improved self-esteem. She says her study fills a gap in ethnographic literature by looking at the relationship between employment and intra-household bargaining processes and outcomes.
