Point was that instead of earning any money for a week's work, we'd come home from a trip owing. I'm sure we could have just abstained from food, but that wouldn't have worked out well. There were no hourly or daily wages available. If you didn't catch fish, you didn't get paid. Regardless, it was just an anecdote.
