Slave Market on the Road

Slave Market on the Road 1

Yaroslavskoye highway in Moscow. These low-paid workers have been standing here for many years. They work for 500 rubles (16,5 USD) a day, often don't return home alive and at best aren't paid a ruble for months and finally turned out.
They stand here from 5 a.m. to 9 p.m. and "attack" each car that stops.
Local police arbitrary rules are becoming ledendary.
The poor guys live in the neighbouring barracks and apartments 10-15 people in a single room paying 3000 rubles (100 USD) for a person.

    OMG, this is horrible! The police do nothing? Poor guys, though.

    • too much vodka says:

      It’s not that the police isn’t doing anything: they are taking bribes from these people.

    • Trackball says:

      Every day I was driving on this road. Police chases them sometimes.

      But these guys want to work. This guest workers from Tajikistan and Uzbekistan.

    • Kirov says:

      These guys are often hired to do cleaning and swiping the streets [dvorniki]. There is a municipal budget for this, and contractors have to make sure the work is done.
      They go to places like this, bargain and make these people work 10 hours a day and hardly pay them. They simply pocket most of the budget themselves.

  2. w says:

    Can’t the government just make these people disappear? These people are disgusting.

    • Boris says:

      Why don’t you shoot yourself ? Ignorant pric.k.

      These people are just looking for a job in the most hostile environment [because of as.sholes like you] imaginable.

      Ripped off and abused by the ‘hospitable’ Russians. The same Russians that first, as true imperialists, drained their home country from everything worthwhile.

  3. JM says:

    “and attack each car that stops”
    Attack? WTF – Ask for job (beg)… not attack.

  4. moose says:

    Same like gipsies in Romania :(
    Damn it!

  5. zz says:

    The same like latinos in US

  6. Ivan says:

    Same as Romanians in Spain and as Latvians en Ireland

  7. George Johnson says:

    Russia’s mexicans.

  8. Testicules says:

    Bum fights?

  9. biggfredd says:

    What do they do? Ask for a job? Handouts? Threaten drivers? Looks like a good way to get run over.

    So if someone wants to hire a worker, do they drive to this open-air “employment office” and pick out an employee for 500 rubles a day rate?

    • DouglasUrantia says:

      These guys are desperate for work. There are thousands of these men standing around at various places in Los Angeles, California. I’ve hired them to help me many times. It’s best to park your car and approach them on foot and talk privately to the one you want to hire. Some of them are excellent workers. I try to feed a good lunch also.

  10. Spongebobtotherescue says:

    looks to me like they can afford smokes.

  11. muhammad Amin says:

    These poor people are looking for daily wages job. They are not Russians. Most of them belong to Centeral Asian states.

    • DouglasUrantia says:

      The ethic and native Russians know how to work the system to get state paid welfare. Yes, these fellows appear to be immigrants.

      • Boris says:

        No welfare in Russia. You can die on the streets.

        I’ve seen bodies covered with a sheet of plastic, lying there for half a day next to a busstop, waiting to be picked up by some garbage truck. This was in St. Pete. Nobody even blinked.

        • Antisojahnk says:

          Same thing. I’ve seen just exactly the same thing on the streets of st. pete

          this bum was lying on the floor dead when in the morning i was going to classes, then when i was coming back in the afternoon, the body was still lying there covered with plastic and there was this ironic sign next to the dead body “careful, wet floor”

  12. muhammad Amin says:

    Can you Imagen about Indians how they beg?

  13. YJ says:

    They are the ones who like to blow up subway trains.

  14. Cracker says:

    Russia has Mexicans too?

  15. CZenda says:

    Are the people ready to work, desperate for a job, or is it only a masked beggary?
    Hard to say, a skilled craftsman is supposed to be worth its weight in gold.

  16. ddr says:

    f..ing bored blackies…

  17. DouglasUrantia says:

    there are not enough jobs for the population of this planet…this is a FACT.

    Most every country is suffering from too many mouths to feed.

  18. Protos says:

    We have the same thing here in the United States. Most often Mexican’s willing to work very hard for very little pay.

  19. TimO says:

    Be blessed its not you!

  20. observer says:

    Churka chyorni islamist,
    bey skoree ego fashist!

  21. these may be are not slave.. but labor who work for daily wages..

  22. KILO says:

    We have a similar spot here in Budapest.
    Its funny to me because the place is called Moscow Square!!!

    you can always pick up workers there.

  23. StalinUSA says:

    So what? USA has Mexican slaves standing near Walmart. Used one to fix my roof few days ago :P

  24. froggy says:
