The exact number of workers in Egypt's limestone quarries is hard to
assess, whereas sites employ workers of all ages, including children aged 14 and
15 years. Whose role is stone flipping, collecting, and filling the powder in the
sacks, and when they grow up, they will use the sharp cutter machine. Poverty is
what makes parents send their children, and the most important holdings for any
worker are sunglasses and mask to protect them.
All that workers want is to return safely to their families and gain a living, and all quarry owners need is to have an understanding of accord between them and
the government, they just want to help them to know how to export, how to input
white bricks in different industries, and how to sell quickly with a high price, and to
support them through the use of these bricks in government buildings instead of red
bricks and not to fight them or impose irregularities on them. As one of the owners
said: "If the Minya quarries were continued as efficiently as before, with support, we
would have iron and steel factories."
