Women Physical Labour in Russia – So just that you know these pictures are not from the Soviet past or an earlier period of Russian history but rather they have been taken not that long ago in 21.st century! Well, this is the Arkhangelsk region of Russia where you can see female workers of some steamshop. Their task sounds simple: they need to warm the workshops and other premises on the territory of the steamshop.
These women work hard because they are afraid to lose their job which is paid very low (185 dollars) but as in the remote region there is no better work it is precious to them! We wish them luck!
