Work leave

During World War II, Japanese Americans were seen as a source of replacement labor for the farms in Utah, Idaho, and Montana. Starting in May 1942, camp inmates could obtain temporary leaves to work in agriculture, either returning to the camps every night or living on the farm for an extended period. In 1942 alone, some 10,000 Japanese Americans left the camps to perform this seasonal work. Their labor was vital to the agriculture industry and thus to the war effort.
