Keep Track of Your Hours!

Keeping your own record of hours is the only way to make sure you are getting paid right. Use a calendar or some other piece of paper to write down the name and address of the employer, the dates and hours you work and the amount you pick or plant. By law, your employer must keep accurate records of the number of hours you work, even if you work by the piece (pound, bucket, etc.), but some employers do not. If you keep records you can compare them with the information on your pay stub every pay day. If you ever find a problem with your pay your record of hours will be very helpful in proving how many hours you worked.
