La historia de agosto

To truly understand exactly how we’re making a killing (remember, this is just an expression, wink, wink), we need to delve into the history of the phrase.

¨Haga su Agosto¨ is literally translated to “make your August.” This term dates back several decades, possibly centuries, and is believed to have been born from the agricultural industry.

You see, August is the main harvest month, and farmworkers are pressed to get the crops off the fields as quickly as they can to meet the end of the season.

There is also a somewhat negative connotation to the phrase when the origins of the “easy money” are a tad on the sketchy side. Again, a whole different blog post for another time.

More food, more money

The main point here is that a good, well-harvested field results in more food and more money in the off-season.

It also means that temporary farmworkers have options during summer to “make a killing” in the fields earning good pay for a short period.
