Farm Workers

A group of about 85 men, all migrant workers, work in a field outside of Lyons, GA, trimming the tops and bottoms from Vidalia Onions before carrying them in buckets to waiting trucks. Workers fill and carry about 100 buckets a day over the 8 to 10 week harvest. Each bucket weighs about 15 pounds. The workers, paid by volume of work, make between $90 and $100 a day.
