Morning Street Sweepers

Street Sweepers getting out of their morning ride.
The “boss” explains the ropes to a rookie. Or so it seems.

I’ve seen these morning street sweepers at least several times now while waiting for the school bus in the morning. Not every day do they appear on our road, but I notice them each time. Chinese don’t take a second glance, but that’s probably because the workers here are expected to do their jobs. I’ve heard they’re paid quite low, which is sad if true since it can be quite back-bending. It must be enough to live on though I assume every one of them is close to retirement, if not retired already.

  1. Those brooms! My dad went out of his way to get a smaller version of that splayed-looking broom for our household. I guessed that it’s a quietly definitive part of our culture 🙂
