Jadawati, a weaver, working on a 24 feet carpet which will take her nearly 40 days to complete. As a bonded labourer, she is paid 60 rupees per day (<$1), a rate nearly half the minimum wages entitled to her as per the law. The carpet which may sell for 25,000 rupees (~$400) or more will have earned Jadawati less than Rs. 2,500 (<$40).
