Carlos Vazquez, 32 years old. He comes from Mesa del Caiman, a community in the mountains of Nayarit. “La compañia” as he calls Philip Morris International, “they dont see how much work we have to do, they just see how much tobacco we can cut and the faster the better. If I go fast, I can ear 100pesos(6.5dollars) per day day, but that is getting up at 5 am to start working and finishing at 3 am the next day. Normally all of us do that in here: men, women, kids…all of us. Only like that we are able to have something to eat during the week.” He said. When it gets dark, they just light up their diesel lap and of course, they have to buy their own diesel for that.
