Men at Work Signs found in Ecuador

Quito, 15.v.2004; pict. J. Breine
Our research team has found only one Man at Work sign so far. They are much less common than the other signs of interest to us.

The Ecuadorian and Peruvian worker are very similar in their appearance and also in their choice of tool, a peculiar type of shovel. However, they probably do not come from the same factory, judging by the difference in the attachment of the limbs.

In Ecuador only the head is loose from the body, workers in Peru have an air gap between the arms and the torso. Air gaps are a good thing in the IT world, but I don't see how these gaps may improve worker safety, or reliability. I rather prefer men of one piece, the Ecuadorian way.
