The next time you sit down for a cup of tea please think of this tea picker for this is her life. She does this work barefoot in a leech infested hillside for 8 hours a day. Day after day, week after week, month after month...year after year.

Imagine grabbing these tea leaves with your fingers, then a quick snap of the wrist is needed to break the leaves off the twig, then she throws the plucked leaves over her shoulder to a bag hanging there.

She works from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. ...has one tea break and a lunch break. Her daily required quota is 18 kilograms of tea (that is 39.6 pounds). For this she makes 750 rupees. (178 rupees equals 1 USD)...or $4.21 USD.

Imagine the RSI she suffers (repetative strain injury). Indeed her hands over the years become deformed, sinewy, painful.

If this woman "plucks" one kilogram more (2.2 pounds) for this she will earn 35 extra rupees. or 19 cents extra. If she plucks less of course she will get less.

Enjoy your cup of tea. (1 year and 206 days ago)
