In this turn of the twenty-first century, we find increasingly rapacious advancement of capital over labor, immersed in remade productive restructuring environments. This process expressed in the contents territory historically determined forms of domination over the workers, and it is therefore one way of precariousness that is through labor migration, facing few alternatives for survival, both in the urban centers and rural Northeast and North of Minas Gerais for Pontal do Paranapanema (SP), in search of better opportunities. The recent expansion of sugarcane agrohidronegócio in Pontal do Paranapanema (SP) is perceived clearly, on one side, through the dizzying expansion of areas planted to cane sugar, but also by the increasing number of migrant workers, especially from 2005 and from 2012, expresses sharp decline. Thus, we propose to understand the dynamics of migratory workers to the cities of Martinópolis, Caiabu and Narandiba, which will allow us to understand work the contradictions capital x work, in the Pontal do Paranapanema (SP) and therefore the migrant worker the centerpiece of this gear that moves the sugarcane exporter agrohidronegócio.
