I take it you have no military time. I spent many a week working 16 hour days in extra cold or extra hot conditions, while eating crappy food. No matter what the working conditions in the sugar fields are it must be better than what Haiti offers.jajajjja not about shape..it's about work conditions ..Dont change the terms
Who/where is it being said that they should be paid the same?I just checked their web site. They are hiring Industrial and mechanical engineers (of course). It is no surprise a man swinging a machete is not going to be compensated the same as a person with an advanced degree.
Do you have an EVIDENCE that these workers are FORCED to work. If you lived here any length of time you would know that they come here looking for these jobs........Who/where is it being said that they should be paid the same?
Ever hear of exploitation? Even if working under those conditions is better than Haiti does not make it right.
Tell me something. Do you want this job? I think not. Well they have the SAME CHOICE as you. They are not in handcuffs. They can just go back where they came from. But they don't because they want THE JOB......................Just because someone needs a job does not give employer the right to mistreat them.
Plenty of evidence exists to to prove the mistreatment.
Your privilege and delusion is really showing.Tell me something. Do you want this job? I think not. Well they have the SAME CHOICE as you. They are not in handcuffs. They can just go back where they came from. But they don't because they want THE JOB......................
I see you have at least one of the woke words in use. No, it is called the reality of the situation. Your naivete is showing.Your privilege and delusion is really showing.
Seems like some bateys have schools and regular housing. https://www.mghihp.edu/sites/default/files/wp-content/uploads/2017/01/IMG_1270_4.jpgLet me explain the conditions of the sugar cane cutters as best as I can. They come here on a visa exemption because of a deal done by the sugar barons and the DR Government. They arrive with nothing. Their home is just one room about 12 x 12 with no kitchen and no bathroom and often only a dirt floor . There is no electricity and no running water although normally there is a tap for all rooms that are in rows. These are the worst of the bateys that are scattered around the huge area of the La Romana Central cane fields . To reach these small bateys normally you must take a dirt road that is used by heavy equipment and access is sometimes forbidden because everything is owned by la Romana Central. The area of la Romana Central extends from the Rio Soco all the way to the road between Higuey and Boca de Yuma and to the north it extends to el Seibo, it is easy to see on a map. So how do these poor people go to work or to seek medical assistance .. they must walk or sometimes they can find a motor bike .I seldom have seen these people in La Romana or Higuey and I have never seen the children at school. Sometimes charitable people try to leave clothes for them.
Going up the scale there are some bateys that you can see off the road between la Romana and El Seibo, These are made of wood and some have electricity and some do not and then further up the scale there are small towns or large bateys and there are regular gua guas running say from Guaymaral and La romana .. Even further up the scale there are rows and rows of what would be slums in any other country built for more senor and definitely Dominican employees. Why slums because the houses are so low and so close together that they become furnaces in summer. But the real offences to humanity are those relating to the cane cutters.
How can these poor workers escape their plight, it is nigh impossible because they have no money because the pay is so poor and they have no valid visa except to work in the cane fields for the sugar companies.
Maybe I should mention this back breaking work done in constant temperatures of over 100 degrees by people with mal nutrition. Maybe I should mention the total indifference by la Romana Central to the plight of these cane cutters or the fact that the Church turns a blind eye to all this.
