A Day Labourer

A day labourer is a person who runs his family by working hard on daily basis. Generally, he lives in a hut in the village or in a slum in the town. He is a very hard-working person. He gets up early and goes to work. He works there all day long. He eats his meals there. He gets a little pay in the evening. He buys food with the money and comes home. A day labourer has to work under rain and sun. He works hard for the rich. But his life is very poor. Often, he does not get enough work. Then he becomes sad. He cannot earn enough to run his family well. He cannot educate his children properly. He cannot buy good cloth for his wife and children. He cannot buy good food for them. But sometimes he gets good work and good pay. Then his heart leaps up in joy.
