For God’s sake, most of us have done what you’ve done. That’s not working 10 hrs./day May to October in the sun for minimum wage—if they’re lucky. I’m ashamed to say 60 years ago on my grandfather’s ranch, the squalor the pickers and families lived in while picking and traying the raisin grapes.
What kind of squalor did you live in? Ours was a family of 6 living in a mansion 14' X 20' consisting of 2 rooms, bedroom and kitchen-living room. Out house and a pump to get our water. Did not wear shoes all summer to save them for school. Had clothes like they wear today but were patched on patch. Like I said, I have worked many jobs I didn't like so I would not be in this kind of situation. By the way, I am 92 years young and would still work the fields if need be.
