Manu works in a textile factory in Okhla, an industrial zone in the South of Delhi. He talks about his working conditions and the chances for resistance in his factory. "No, there was no leader. There were 50 craftsmen. When it was lunchtime at 3 o’clock, all the craftsmen went outside and talked with one another that the rate was low and it should be raised otherwise we should stop working at 3:30. So everybody went inside and stopped working. When the supervisor asked us to work, we said: 'First increase the rate.' There was no need for a leader. And there was no agreement with the management, only with the contractor."
