Construction workers in Dhaka, Bangladesh

January, 2007

Bangladesh is one of the most densely populated countries in the world, and the demand for living quarters is sky high.

Everywhere you look in the capital Dhaka there are construction sites, and most of the work is done by hand.

The men who work at the sites eat, sleep, wash and work at the construction sites, for up to three months at a time. They get paid around $100 a month. When they are finished, they move back to poverty the countryside while the newly rich overclass move into the homes they just finished.
