Middle age for both men and women is a time of hard work. Most men and women are married and have children and grandchildren by the time they reach middle age. Men will have achieved some measure of success as hunters and women as food managers by this time and most will have several children in the community schools. Because of the need for cash, this is also a time when men and women are likely to be employed in both aspects of the economy, carrying out extensive subsistence work while also working at some form of wage labor. In subsistence work, men work most closely with other men of their family at this time, as do women. In wage labor, by contrast, men and women share work places and also work with persons other than those of their own immediate patrilineage or clan.
