Description

Winston Williams, a seasonal worker from Jamaica, has worked as a foreman of a sixteen-man crew at White Oak Farms in Warren. “I like Maine. Peoples very friendly, not a lot of crime—that’s what the guys like here. The only problem we have with Maine is the cold,” he said in 2009.

The work is hard, and Williams dreams of cutting back to fewer months spent in Maine each year “to make it easier for me and for my family [in Jamaica].”
