Transcript of In Strawberry Fields - Info

In this piece, Eric Schlosser discusses the hardships of working in strawberry fields in California and he talks about the living conditions as well as the wages of the migrant workers from Mexico that work on these strawberry fields.
This excerpt is apart of Eric Schlosser's novel, Reefer Madness: Sex, Drugs, and Cheap Labor in the American Black Market.
The author intricately outlines a day in the life of a strawberry field worker, their living conditions, and history.
Most strawberry workers are paid under minimum-wage and many live in small quarters or are homeless.
The workers do not have guaranteed jobs, only day-to-day assignments.
Workers can vary from age fifteen to forty and can get paid by the hour or by quantity.
