INDIAN ROAD WORKERS
Despite being an agrarian, subsistence farming society for the most part, Bhutanese
people have a decided dislike for the physically demanding work of road-building and
pretty much refuse to take part in the constant roadwork going on in the country.
The Bhutanese unembarrassedly believe that such work is beneath them.
For this reason, the government contracts with Indian companies which hire whole families
of Indians living in the northernmost states of India, particularly Assam, to
perform the necessary road construction and repair. These folks must have no
prospects at all in their home states because they are eager to get these onerous jobs
which pay so very little and offer such pitiful living conditions.
