The employer will provide the tools necessary to perform the described job duties without charge to the worker.

Grape tomatoes will only be picked red & high orange – no pink, no breakers and no green. All buckets will be filled to the top without being “shaken” (making it appear more tomatoes are in the bucket than there really are).
