A Day Labourer
Who is a day labourer? What are his daily activities? What are his pleasures and pains?
A day labourer is he who does heavy manual labour in various fields. He is quite known to all. He is to be healthily, strong and stout. He lives with his family in a slum; He gets up early in the morning and goes out in search of work. He works hard from dawn to dusk for his employer and gets his wages at evening. Then he goes to market, buys his daily necessaries and returns to his slum. He is always dependent on his employer. When he gets more work, he earns more and then he and the members of his family eat to their heart’s content. Sometimes he and his family pass a day without food if he cannot manage work. However he is in great demand in harvesting season. The life of a day labourer is full of sorrows and sufferings. He can hardly enjoy peace and happiness. In all weathers-good and bad he works hard all day long and earns his livelihood by the sweat of his brow. He does not know what rest is. Through the service if a day labourer is of great importance, he is very much neglected. He is ill paid as well as very much neglected. He is not held in due respect. So we should have soft feeling for him so that he can lead a decent life with dignity.
