Rice workers:

These pictures are of the rice fields and the rice workers.  These men work from early morning until about 4:30 5:00 p.m.  This is really back breaking work as you can see.  They earn as low as 200 pesos a day (about $5).  Some rice growers will pay a little more, but the average is 200 pesos.

Notice they are working in water and the Carabao that is there standing in the water and probably doing his "business" as they work.  Doesn't look very fun to me.
