The camp is called Hooverville. It is large and crowded. Families are unable to work and pretty much starving. Conditions are dirty, unsanitary and unsafe. If they are lucky, workers get offered jobs but are underpaid. The energy they expend picking fruit does not earn them enough money to feed their families. So really, they don't survive. Ma cooks up a small stew and a crowd of kids come begging for some.
