CASTRO, Laura Silva Peixoto de  e  MONTEIRO, Janine Kieling. Tobacco farmers' health and work in RS: both farmers and smokers grow sick. Psicol. rev. (Belo Horizonte) [online]. 2016, vol.22, n.3, pp. 790-813. ISSN 1677-1168.

This paper has investigated how tobacco farmers deal with the adversities experienced in work. Fifteen tobacco farmers from Dom Feliciano-RS participated in focus groups. For the results, content analysis was used, defining a priori categories based on the theoretical approach of Dejour's Work Psychodynamics. Four main causes of suffering have been pointed out: no acknowledgement, low and unstable income, dangerous work conditions and excessive workload. Despite being aware of the work conditions, many tobacco farmers consider themselves guilty for indedtedness and not dedicating enough time for rest. In this precarious environment instigated the way the work is established, workers experience: family disputes, drug addiction, child labor and suicide. It has become clear that tobacco farmers need a 'voice' so that their opinions can be heard, as well as owning this reflexive construction in order to re-determine their work
