Labor and Workers in Brazil

Worker in selective garbage collection. Porto Alegre.

“In Jangurussu the heirs of hunger lay the obtuse borders of idleness

Partners in hope and misery the garbage collectors in Jangurussu feed servitude

Buried by exploiters they hide their pains in the swamp of exploited objects

Disfranchised and disowned they dream with a life of green and ruminate the immeasurable stinginess.”

Dimas Macedo, Jangurussu, Lavoura Úmida, 1990
