Labor systems

Mrs. Longnecker was talking about labor and mentioned free pesant labor. Can someone explain what that was and where it was practiced. Thank you!!!

Free peasant labor would be most similar to Industrial factory workers. You can work wherever you like and you get paid for your work. In medieval and early modern Europe, peasants who were not serfs but not craftsmen could be free peasants. Here is an example about a Free Peasant

Thank you so much!
