Abstract
A 1998 survey of farm workers in Zimbabwe detailing their demographic, and skill, land access and viewpoints of land reform and redistribution is used to examine the very real constraints and the possibilities for poverty reduction among longstanding marginalized social groups in the on-going fast-track land resettlement in Zimbabwe. Based on these data and other research, farm workers are willing and viable settlers in this process but are being prevented from joining in while losing their jobs. It is suggested that unless farm workers are included in the land reform in a significant number the vast majority will join the growing ranks of the extreme rural and urban poor
