I don't remember much of the picking experience from +45 years ago. I think the pickers were paid by the number of baskets they produced and $ amounts were probably small. All family members participated from young to old. Much of the town's infrastructure (stores and factories) were closed during this time.

My step-mom, an English born national, said the Euros were 50 years behind America. They heated their homes with coal or peat, not too many with cars, poor highway system, refrigeration was new, etc.
