Abstract

Fish goons do the grunt work at the Portland Fish Exchange, throwing around 100-pound totes and using a bandsaw to cut the heads off the fish for the princely wage of $7.50 per hour. Most goons are in their early- to mid-20s, spend their money on beer and drugs and have the anger necessary for the demanding work. The author, a former goon, quit the docks a year ago, and is off to graduate school. Details.
