|Title:||The rural - industrial interface: a study of emerging occupational consciousness of supervisors in a Nyanza sugar refinery|
|Authors:||Henley, John S.|

|Abstract:||The authors explore the type of commitment to work of a group of supervisors in a sugar refinery in Kenya. It might be thought that such a group of people, who are mostly first-generation wage earners, would display the classic symptoms of alienation since they have been removed from a rural peasant environment and exchange their labour for a cash wage in a modern, capital-intensive factory. However, it appeared that they identified with their work and enlarged the rewards and status they derived from it. The majority planned to stay with the company.
