“In my lifetime, I have worked the equivalent of two or three people,” says Jose Castaneda in 2009. When he was five years old, he began his work life on the family farm in El Salvador. Since coming to Maine from Central America in 1993, he has taken whatever jobs he could, all of them in seafood processing, with little time for fun. Yet he has carved out one place in his life where he can forget about work and experience pure joy: the soccer field.
As of 2017, Jose Castaneda works as a seafood processor and proudly founded the Portland soccer league.
