"“While Cesar was organizing, I was picking grapes or doing whatever field work was available,” she was quoted in “Cesar Chavez: Autobiography of La Causa” by Jacques E. Levy. “I’d work 10 hours a day, five days a week, for 85 cents an hour, I think.” All while caring for her children, cooking meals and keeping house. “I think the beginning of the union was the roughest time we had.”"
