Guest Workers

The other day when I was passing a construction site, I noticed some activity on the top of the building.

From what I could make out the worker was not wearing any safety harness or other safety device except for a 'hard hat'.

We are always complaining about the social problems that having guests workers here are causing, but we give little credit to the fact that they do most of the dangerous and unappealing jobs that we Malaysians shy away from. (That's why I'm guessing that the guy up there is not Malaysian.)

I just need to remind myself that whenever I see a guest worker I should at least smile at him/her as my way of saying 'Thank You' for saving us the trouble of doing every thing ourselves.
