Time: every morning
Price: the price of public indifference

Near the Museum, as they do every morning, a group of Palestinian laborers gathered – sitting and waiting to be picked up by casual employers from random work sites

Laborers whose work is unsecured, whose future is obscure – are working on the margins of unemployment.

Oscar Abosh documented one of many moments.
Was it routine? Was it coincidence?

Either way, in place of the contractor's van, they are picked up by a police patrol vehicle.
