Description
Full title:Family labor in strawberry field at opening of 1942 season. Evacuation due in a few days. For many years approximately 95% of California's strawberry crop has been produced by Japs and this state has become third in the nation in the production of the crop. Evacuation of Japs has left in Santa Clara County alone 50 unoccupied strawberry farms, crop valued around 100,000 dollars annually. In this state Japs cropped approximately 11,000 acres.--San Francisco Chronicle, April 17, 1942. The workers in the field are members of or related to the family who operates the farm. During harvest season they work about 10 to 12 hours a day every day except Saturday. Their home is seen beyond the strawberry rows. Note irrigation. Mission San Jose, California.
