Labor and Workers in Brazil

Ammunition factory (Realengo). Rio de Janeiro, 1938-1942.

“It is the worker!

Whose perfect hands build all the beauty of an industry or of anything that is otherwise built;

without hands touch, nothing could be made.

Everything may be automatic, but made by the worker.

And without the operation of a lever, or the pushing of a button, nothing could be made.”

From the diary of Josué de Souza Pacheco, worker at Rhodia Química, 1964

Arara indian. Altamira (PA), 1989
