Harvest workers among COVID world’s last regular travelers

ROCCA DE’ GIORGI, Italy (AP) — Her hands were hardly visible, so quickly did they press the clippers before dropping grape clusters into red plastic bins. Some distance behind her, in the next row over, Italian students subbing in due to a pandemic-fueled worker shortage tried vainly to catch up.



Alexandra Ichim, a 20-year-old Romanian, works during a grape harvest in Rocca de Giorgi, Italy, Thursday, Sept. 10, 2020. Though from a Romanian region famed for its wine, Ichim had never worked in vineyards before traveling to Italy's Lombardy region for the September grape harvest, known in Italian as the vendemmia — the pay is too low in Romania and the working conditions too harsh, she says. Instead, the 20-year-old came on a 12-hour bus ride and returned by plane to her native Arad region when the harvest was done. (AP Photo/Antonio Calanni)
