Manholes are Depressing

Don't believe me? Check out how they are made, according to the New York Times.

The picture is pretty damned convincing all in itself. But not to worry, there's an explanation as to why workers are making manhole covers bare-footed.
Mr. Modi said that his factory followed basic safety regulations and that workers should not be barefoot. “It must have been a very hot day” when the photos were taken, he said.
Isn't every day a hot day when you are working in a foundry?

Story found by the charming folks at Talking Points Memo.
