The vineyard workers put in 8-10 hours daily. Working outdoors everyday (rain or shine/ year-round), doing everything from planting to harvesting. During my time at Monte Creek (over a year) I was given added responsibilities and asked to work extra hours. As a Foreman I had my own crew, many acres of vineyard to manage, and working an average of fifty hours weekly. However, the company was reluctant to give me a raise for this increase in responsibility and hours. I was given a raise months after being tasked with the role of Foreman ($17/ hour while the previous foreman started at $18/ hour). When I finally quit, the company offered me the same job again for $24/ hour. They would have happily underpaid me for years if I had allowed them. I'm glad I didn't go back.
