As India’s economic prosperity  explodes so has the building Industry which has led to a growing demand for cheap local building Materials.

Labour  is pooled from Families who travel hundreds of miles to work as brick makers in kilns dotted around the urban growth belt.

The entire family will work making as many as 1500 bricks per day.
A family will earn about three dollars per day.
Despite Government Officials speaking about legislation and how the families are looked after, the conditions for the very poor in India has not changed.

The multinational global expansion and urban development is being carried on the backs of  India’s poorest.
