In the country’s lumberyards, whole families work on a piecework basis to make a living. The men stand at the band saws and cut construction timber from logs already cut to length. The women stand at the circular saws and cut slats from the wood waste and nail them together to make boxes for tomatoes, bananas, lanzones and other things. The older ones look after the children or repair and sharpen the saws.

With the video camera, we visited such a wood yard and watched the people at work.
