sheriesquivias 4 years, 8 months ago on Letter to the Editor: Workers suffer

I have worked in the orchards my whole life and have known many people who have come to pick our fruit. The people who i have been associated with are professionals when it comes to harvesting the fruit. I have picked cherries,apples,peaches,pears,and grapes.It takes a lot of talent to make a living from this. When the crop harvest gets to slow down everyone gets antsy to move on to the next job. the old saying moss doesnt grow under their feet holds true for them. They chose this life it didnt choose them. For you to say they show discomfort you have never been in the field working side by side with them or you wouldnt say such things! How many work enviroments do you know of where there is sunshine,laughter,singing,and you get to watch the sun come up each day? Try it sometime work like this is almost forgotten in this day and age.
