“I started to work on the cut-cane field, you know, that loading. Hapai ko (carrying sugar cane), we call that, no? Pile, yo (I tell you). We make the pile for the ones to load the cane on the (cane) car. And that one, I used to get dollar quarter, one day. Not hour, you know, one day. And that’s really hard work, but if I go to hoeing, seventy-five cents a day.” —Hanako Gushiken
