Comments / Narrative

In their internal rules they are supposed to pay 50 Serbian dinar (RSD) (around 50 cents of Euro) but they are not asking for that for the moment.

There are special workshops for women and young people.
They are funded in part by the German Government,

Members of the syndicate sale materials, but not the syndicate itself.

They also say that they face lack of protection, lack of accessibility, lack of health care, great number of injuries, lack of identification.
