For instance, the second part of the book is mostly set in South Carolina, where Woodson's grandparents are practicing Jehovah Witnesses who work as a teacher and dayworker
(her grandmother) and as a foreman at a printing press (her grandfather).
Later, when women staff members of the Dayworkers
Association heard we were designing this training, they invited us to facilitate a gender training for their staff in Los Angeles.
It is not unusual for men and women to share rooms and have a 'hotbed' arrangement where night workers use the same beds that the dayworkers
have slept in.
As in previous studies, shiftworkers had a higher rate of sleep problems than dayworkers
. Shiftwork was specifically related to waking up too early rather than other types of sleep problems.
Maybe it was those years of getting atop flatbed trucks to rally migrant dayworkers
in the California farmlands.
