When I was a kid there were hundreds of migrants picking carrots and onions in my area. Today its a lot more mechanized process. There are still some field hands but their numbers are minimal.

Back in the mid 80s I did plenty of rock picking and hay baling.

I did the same in the 70’s. In fact it was one hot day in July, stacking hay in a barn, when I came to the realization that I really wanted to go to college.
