Hamilton Family, sardine works, Eastport. Father earns $15 to $25 a week irregularly during the work season for three months. Said that 20 years ago he made $5 a day as a boy, cutting. The mother is a packer makes $10 a week and upward, during the active season. Another boy, not in the photo, works also. In the front row are George Hamilton, 11 years old, who cuts regularly--made a dollar in three hours the day before; Byron, with a badly cut finger, earns 25 cents a day; little Erna 8 years old works at cartoning. The father is dissatisfied with the irregular income, but cannot see the connection between his early boyhood work and his present stagnation. He is putting his little ones through the same process.
