Coffee Worke

Coffee Worker 

Eduardo Alexander Rabel

Mixed Media w/acrylic, paper, coffee cups, ground coffee and burlap on masonite & wood

In this work Rabel uses mixed media to create a message. Rabel is trying to bring concern to the working conditions of coffee workers...on average a coffee workers wages are 2.85/hr. There work in unsanitary conditions and work with pesticides with no protection. Rabel uses coffee cups and beans for the majority of his work, I think that it is a very moving piece. Basically the coffee workers are working horrendous hours for americans to get their starbucks and dunkin donuts, and while the workers continue to struggle with daily living expenses these corporations are making millions.
