Rag picking upscaled…

The rag picking is never been the same now, the city has grown and so is the area for these rag pickers. This one is using a bicycle to help him collect the stuff which is unusual as most of them just carry it on their backs. The biggest benefits provided by these rag pickers to the society is that of enabling ‘reuse and recycle’ principle, helping collect & sort garbage for still usable materials. The section as usual is far neglected and thrives on many challenges…

I am not sure how you consider this "upscale"?

larger load, added equipment is what i meant to "upscale", this is the first time ever i see a rag picker use and carry the load on bycycle.....

Very interesting and provocative photo. That looks like a very hard life.

This is a important job to
recycle things, why are they
not paid better?

I tried this kind of job once,
but I was terrible at it,
and the recyclers fired me.

Figures.
