And The Answer Is...

Known affectionately as "stick stick soldiers," these men (and sometimes women) make their wage by carrying (and sometimes selling) almost anything you can think of on the ends of a bamboo pole or wooden beam. Found in large numbers in river communities, you can see them transporting luggage around cruise ships and ferries, carrying recyclables, food items, or even chairs through the busy streets. We even met up with one man at the end of the C-Mart check out counter waiting to assist with grocery bags.

Can you imagine seeing these guys at Giant, Shopper's Food Warehouse, or Pathmark?
