Amid garbage pile

, February 6, 2013

A woman pushes her pram while walking past a pile of trash during the ninth day of strike by garbage collectors against pay cuts and their working hours in the Andalusian capital of Seville on February 5. Around 6,000 tonnes of rubbish have been left uncollected on Seville's streets since the strike started. The management of Lipasam, Seville's munipical street cleaning company, rejected a plan proposed by the city council to reduce the garbage collectors' wages by five percent while increasing their working hours, local media reported.
