Countryfile

I was watching a strawberry picking race on Countryfile last night (BBC 1 ) With presenter Matt Baker taking up a challenge with a fruit picker George against two others. I was taken aback at the rate these pickers went with George amazingly beating all. However, I wondered how much they are paid on an average day and if they have to pay so much for their accommodation? Without being racially biased in any way, I noticed that although they spoke good English, as there was an accent. I am just hoping they are not being manipulated in any way by the way they were picking. I wonder if anyone can keep up that pace all day or for the time they have to do it.
