"The Elegance In Her Stoic Strength"
In a region where later is cheep, no more poignant example can be found that in the construction industry. This woman will carry 200 of these baskets in a day. Each one weighs about 15kg and she may have to carry them 100m to 400m each trip. She is carrying gravel that is dredged up from the river bottom and barged to the construction site. The gravel is one of the key ingredients used in making cement. For her toil she will earn 20Kyat (about $0.02usd) for two baskets. The work usually starts around 5am and ends when the heat becomes too much. She then will have to go home and cook and take care of her children.
