Lustradores

They’re young; don’t talk much, they will see your shoes before going up the eye. Some of them walk several miles a day, the lucky ones have earned a place that is unchanging over time.  His job is to let your shoes shiny and clean.

They belong to a marginalized sector of society that has to earn a living on daily basis. They have no education and perhaps will never have.  Work dignifies, some say;  no wonder the country has the highest number of child labor in Central America.
