WE suggested in an earlier chapter that since most married women have the same work to do, in caring for child and home, their job reinforces their kinship and makes the mother-daughter tie pre-eminent. We must now enquire whether the men of the family are held together likewise. Do son and father follow the same occupation or not? Is the brotherhood of work a figure of speech or a statement of fact? The economic structure is one thing, kinship another. How, if at all, do they affect one another? To answer this question we must digress for a moment to describe the chief features of the local economy.
