Captive Labour - A Brick Factory { 8 images } Created 16 Apr 2010

It can be seen as a form of modern day slavery. The Indian subcontinent is filled with such places as this brick factory. Workers are from poorer sections of the community, and are often displaced from their village or homeland for economic or social reasons, or even due to a natural disaster.?The work is hard and the days a very long. Safety is non existent, and the health of the workers is damaged by the thick black smoke given off from burning old tyres to heat the kilns.?Landlords provide housing, but demand repayments through work.?In reality, the debt that the parents owe will never be repaid, and will continue onto the children for generations. The workers are inevitably slaves through debt.
