These were sent to me in an email stating workers from Haiti. Don't know the validity but thought worth posting. I am not sure if from Haiti as one attachment "Bricks" was posted here some time ago. So I didn't repost it.

See a lot of that style in Central America. Right beside equipment to move earth is a shovel battalion, moving more earth than the mover. Sad, but hilarious too.

I was feeling for the guy doing the catching. One overbalance and OUCH.

Most all of my dad's family were brick masons, so I did a lot of manual labor when growing up. The easiest part of the job was sitting or standing on a scaffold and catching brick, assuming the guy on the ground was a good thrower. If the guy on the ground was good, he could throw the brick (2 at a time) so all I had to do was to use a light touch and guide them to the stack.

If you had a new guy on the ground throwing the brick, he could knock you off the scaffold.

I was never coordinated enough to throw the brick which was fortunate for me as that is one tough job, however, not as tough as shoveling mortar overhead like those guys were doing.
