Humanities homework – Tea Plantation worker We live in Britain which is a ‘MEDC’ More Economically Developed Country, and a everyday rotor would be, getting up at 7am, going to school/work at 8am, eating lunch at 13:15pm, coming home at 16:00pm, watching television/going on the computer at 16:30pm, eating dinner at 17:00pm, doing some work at 18:00pm and then getting some sleep at 19:00pm and then repeating the day again. However, in a {LEDC} Less Economically Devolved Country’s like India, their rotors are different. Some there don’t even have jobs. But there is one job that I am looking at particularly, which is tea picking. One of the many country’s that suffers picking tea leaves without a reasonable pay is India.

Around about 12:30 she would go on her lunch break, at 13:50-14:00pm she would go back to work, at 15:50-16:00pm they go and weigh their tealeaves in and take their wages home, then at 16:30pm she would pick up the kids and get dinner ready, then at 17:10pm she would tidy everything up-dinner table plus around the house, then her & her family would go and do something together- watch television at 18:50pm, and of course finally go to bed to get a good nights sleep at
