SAKADAS WORKER ARE THE WORKER WORKING IN SUGAR PLANTATION . THESE ARE THE WORKER TO MAKE THE PLANTATION PRODUCTIVE . FROM THE PLANTING OF THE SUGAR CANE TO HARVESTING .NEGROS IS THE MAJOR SUGAR PRODUCER IN THE PHILIPPINES . AND ONE OF THE PHILIPPINES MAJOR EXPORTING CROP .THESE PEOPLE ARE WORKING NINE HOURS A DAY UNDER THE SUN AND SWEATING ALL THE TIME WITH ONE HOUR OF LUNCH BREAK . EATING A LOT RICE AND DRIED FISH OR VEGETABLES. THEN THE REST OF THE HOURS ONLY DRINKING WATER TO KEEP THEM WORKING .NO MATTER HOW HARD IS THEIR WORK . WHEN THEY SEE ME TAKING PICTURES . THEY WAVE ON ME AND SMILE . MAKING FOUR DOLLARS A DAY . GOOD ENOUGH TO BUY A KILO OF RICE AND SOME PROVISION TO SURVIVE ON THEIREVERDAY LIFE AND THEY DONT MIND THE WORK . I THINK THAT IS THE ATTITUDES OF THE FILIPINOS . EVEN IN TIME OF CATASTROPHE LIKE EARTHQUAKE. WHEN YOU TALKED TO THEM HOW ARE THEY ? THEY ALWAYS SMILE .THEY DONT TAKE THE MATTER SERIOUSLY . WHILE THE RETIRED TRAIN THEY USED TO PULL ALL THE CAR FULL OF SUGAR CANE NOW IS ON DISPLAY ON THE PLATATION . THE TRAIN IS MADE IN USA .
