What I’m Reading: Farewell to Manzanar – 16 in a series – ” She had a monthly fee to pay the warehouse in Los Angeles …”

August 14th, 2019

“Nineteen dollars a month. This was top wage for an internee. Unskilled labor started at eight. All volunteer of course. You didn’t have to get out of bed in the morning if you didn’t want to. Mama wanted the work. She had a monthly fee to pay the warehouse in Los Angeles where she had stored what remained of our furniture.”

From Farwell to Manzanar by by Jeanne Wakatsuki Housto and James D. Houston
