We're using a textbook called "English for Management Studies" by Tony Corballis and Wayne Jennings at our English classes at university. I'm saying this so that you know that the following sentence should be viewed in managerial context. The sentence is:
Seasonal farm ___ are often employed to help bring in the harvest.
I'm expected to fill in the gap with the correct form of the
verb WORD "hand". I Googled it and found out that there is a noun - farmhand - a person who works on a farm. It seems like it fits the context, but I don't see much of a managerial meaning here, that's why I'm asking (e.g., previous sentences were like "Start-up _ (capital) is available in ..." or "The human resources _ (manager) is in charge of ...", etc.). Another reason for doubting is that "farmhand" appears to be one word, while the gap in the sentence implies that there are two words. I would appreciate any help. Thanks in advance.
