in totem # 10 there is one man carrying fabric and another man carrying something else in the back ground, and the fact that multiple people are carrying these huge loads just amazes me
Emmy Farrell's comment, May 1, 2013 1:23 PM
in totem #13 i think it is interesting that he has a cage on it, and that is how he is carrying these bottles. there is also a guy who looks like he is staring in amazment at the cage, surprised about that he can carry them all.

Taylor Brown's comment, May 3, 2013 11:55 AM
The migrant workers should be able to live in the city if they want to. If anyone has a problem with it they should just move. They need to treat all of their workers the same no matter where they come from. There has even begun to be rioting because they want higher pay, and the businesses need to keep their workers under control.
Emmy Farrell's comment, May 3, 2013 1:32 PM
there has been to many riots about better pay, but they are not doing any thing about it
Iryl Bacdayan's comment, May 5, 2013 3:28 PM
I think that the workers should be able to change their household registration so that they can send their kids to local schools. If they want to change it they have to meet a ton of requirements, which could be very hard to meet. I also think that it's not very fair how they are denied of the rights that city dwellers have.
