Not Your Average Job

In South Africa, Madmoet Abrahams earns his living by recycling. For every kilogram of paper, he receives 23 South African Rand (about $2.35), earning a total of about 50 Rand per day. Having saved up 300 Rand to buy a bicycle, he attached to it an old baby carriage and uses the unique vehicle to carry scraps of white paper to the paper scrap yard every day, rain or shine.
