This morning we met up with Victor from Giral and Roberto, our translator. We got into cars/cabs and were on our way to the outskirts of town to visit another cooperative. This cooperative was called Vira Lata. We were introduced to Joanna, she has been working in the cooperative for the past two years on and off. We were able to see where they work and Joanna explained how the machines work. We started talking to the other members of her team; we found out that they operate as a team of five to six. They work with the same team everyday and the best part of their job is the people they work with. The work is hard and dangerous; sorting, crushing and breaking glass bottles and other materials. Many of the people we spoke with were grateful that they had work and hoped for a better life for their children. After our chat we got to work, helping to sort the bottles and feed them into the glass crusher. Thank you to all the people that spoke with us today and shared their stories!
