I'm in Arkansas and a few yrs ago, blacks would load up on the back of trucks and make about $25-30 a day "chopping cotton". Someone told me they don't pick, but chop down the weeds.

My husband and his friends use to pick peaches as teens. They were paid by the crate, he said no one could touch them Mexicans when it came to filling a crate.
