Men return to shore with their day's haul of rock salt, at Lake Katwe, Uganda. Rock salt is harvested from the main body of the lake three days a week with workers paid by weight at approximately $2 per 100kg, of which the government takes a percenage. All men work from dusk till dawn with a strong worker extracting 400 kg per day. Skin damage is a major problem for people working at Lake Katwe as chemicals in the water eat away at any nick or cut and also cause nerve damage.
