Following a brief career handing out leaflets for 2 hours a week at 13, and a paper round. I entered the Monday to Friday gang one summer at 16, but he did insist I signed a document to say I was 15. 16 year olds were paid slightly more.
It was in a market garden, jobs included growing, training and picking tomatoes, and likewise for chrysanthemums.
The boss was very mean spirited and preferred to moan at you rather than give you credit.
I got the sack at the end of the season for being lippy. End of the season and I got the sack? Pure coincidence, no doubt about it. <meh>
