Brick industry in India is labour intensive, employing up to 10 million workers according to some estimates (ILO Report on brick kiln workers). The industry remains completely manual with almost no mechanization. Most brick workers are seasonal migrant workers who migrate for six months or more with their families to kiln sites.
However, over the last few weeks one activist who is working on the issues of the brick kiln workers received a desperate calls for help from a worker. The worker brought to his attention incidences of violence inflicted on workers by the brick kiln owners and measly payments of wages.
