Holiday jobs in the local packing plant

Absolutely first paid work, apart from paper-rounds, was working on the production line of the then nearby "poultry packing plant", which offered holiday jobs.

It was a first venture into the outside world for me.

The work was astonishingly monotonous, performing just one action on the production line to the chicken carcasses moving by hanging on the shackles.
