Same old, same old. Recall the history of sharecropping in the Southern U.S.--modern school textbooks piss and moan over the "brutal racist oppression of sharecroppers", overlooking the fact that (1) most poor sharecroppers were White and (2) most blacks in that situation failed to move up and improve their situation because of sheer fecklessness.

It's tenant farmers renting the land from an owner and paid the rent at the end of the growing season with a part of the crop.

It isn't slavery in anyway and you could just up and leave if you didn't want to do it anymore.
