Labor and Workers in Brazil

Longshoreman. Alagoas, 1952-1955. 

“When you work all tied up, you are held by the belt and your leg may come loose

or your hand may let go and you don’t fall straight down, you can hold on to something, whatever that is.

But, without anything, no safety, it is scary.

It is scary, the worker works in horror.”

Civil construction worker, Ceará, 2005

Maintenance work on power transmission line. São Paulo
