Labour Day Laos Style

Yesterday was Labour Day or International Workers Day throughout the world, a day to celebrate the lot of workers & to reflect on the fruits that their labours bring, whilst also honouring the rights of workers to divide their working day into three lots of eight hours, one for work, one for recreation and one for rest.

Her are a few Laotian occupations that I came across in 2010….
