Friday Photo: Beijing

After this weekend, there are two months until the Olympics. This photo is reminiscent of the few from New York City during the depression of the laborers having lunch on an I-beam hundreds of feet above the city on the frame of a skyscraper.

Because the user has all rights reserved, I am unable to host it here. Please follow this link to see it.

The key thing from both this photo linked above and the NYC is the emphasis of development on the backs of cheap laborers. This labor has even been treated in a very disposable fashion through out both countries’ industrial development.

It will be interesting to see what happens in the next few months before the world focuses its gaze on the Chinese capital.
