setting/re-setting irrigation pipe
Drywall hanging and finishing
Plastic injection molding
underground utility installations, laborer
Tree planter - piece work and hourly
wood working - making futons
Picking up rocks - paid by the ton
Wildcrafting (moss, salal, st john's wort, yerba santa)
wood working - making tables

ages 14-23, mixed with other jobs that were not as labor intensive such as making pizzas, washing dishes, working in a library, working at a call center and probably a few others.
civil disobedience a problem? NO! Our problem is that people are OBEDIENT all over the world, in the face of poverty and starvation and stupidity, and war and cruelty. -HZ
