        I could not believe how little they had for a daily stipend. I know the dollar went further but that was so little.

        And they had very little backup or help. Schedules were rough & how hard on his own family.

        When you read something like this from our relatively recent history it really puts a spotlight on how many modern inventions & technologies we count on daily — much less in a highly dangerous job like this!

          I was surprised as well by how low their stipends were. And how much they were expected to work! I wonder if things have changed…

            I couldn’t believe how little their stipends were either.  I was also uncomfortable by how many times they were treated more as errand boys, which I don’t think is the case today.
