11:30am: Whistle! Kaukau pau. Go back to work.
4:30pm: Whistle! Pau hana.
8:00pm: Whistle! Lights out. Women:
Wake up at 4:00am, to prepare breakfast and lunch.
At 4:30pm, after pau hana, women would go to furo/bath. Then fix dinner. Then either garden, sew, and/or take care of other family matters.
After 8:00pm when lights were out, women still had to continue family care activities as necessary. 1910: 1/3 of all Japanese women worked in the sugar fields.
50 cents/10hr. workday
$13/month, equals 66% of Japanese men's wages. Men: Cut, carry, and loaded the cane.
