Labor and Workers in Brazil

Belgo-Mineira Steel mill. João Monlevade (MG), 1941(?)

“1.300º in the shade of sheds

12,000 invisible horses thinking

40,000 tons of yellow nickel

To overcome the spongy waters

And a railway sprouting from the ground

From the mighty furnaces

Come pig iron and slag

The refining plants bars

And down there workers

Forge the first slivers of steel”

Oswald de Andrade, Metalúrgica, Pau Brasil, 1925

Oil rig. Bacia de Campos (RJ).
