Bricks of Labor

 

Construction industry is highly ranked in many developing countries.  Business for bricks is booming in India and brick kiln laborers form a large portion of workers in this informal sector. Workers are mostly internal migrants from marginalized and poor communities with little employment alternatives; a combination that is rife for exploitation and discrimination. Workers have little or no knowledge of their rights and in many cases end up as bonded labor for long periods. They often fall prey to loan sharks who use labor as part of the payback.

This set of images form part of my wider project on Brick Kiln Workers.
