Harman Kaur lives with her mother, step-father, and step-grandfather in Punjab. Her step-father is a labourer and is having a difficult time providing for his family. Labourers often perform back-breaking work for very little wages. Harman’s step-father makes about 4,000 rupees each month – that’s only $80 CAD. Harman’s step-grandfather also works as a bus driver and earns about 3,000 rupees each month.
