Following the thesis of Marx and Engels and Lenin for his study of the development of capitalism in Russia, we ask: semi-feudal women labourers survive in the greenhouses of tomatoes South of Tenerife? It has been answered affirmatively to this question by conducting interviews on working conditions suffering from such laborers. Consequence of this is that in the greenhouses of tomatoes is lower productivity and wages of these women are the lowest in the labor market.
