After reading the chapter, I have so many thoughts about it. First from the songs that the workers sing when they are working in the plantation, I felt that the workers are not treated fair enough, especially in terms of how much they got paid and the works that they got to do. They had to wake up early in the morning, even before the dawn breaks, then work under the hot sun and intolerable weather, and yet they are not paid as much. Actually this is similar to what happen in my country too (I am from Indonesia). Many people in Indonesia have maids in their homes, and sometimes it’s not only one, but a few, depends on how large the houses are and how capable the employers are financially. And in Indonesia, normally the maids came from those rural parts of the islands and then travel to the more urban ones (where most of us live), and work there. So during their period of working, they had to stay in the employers’ house. They had to eat there, sleep there, and work there. And the maids’ age can actually vary from as young as 10 years
