Sunset to Dusk— Took the chance to spark up a conversation with one of the workers at the sugar mill.The stalks you see in the photoset are locally known as tubo or sugar cane. These workers work in teams, and they need to gather the sugar canes by ton for them to get paid. From what I heard, they get P1200 per ton. So that’s like P1200 for 5-7 people. Life’s hard, but I guess you need to do anything you can to survive.
