Every day the glass-cleaning worker works 8 hours like other jobs but it is much more tiring. "Just imagine sitting still on a rocking chair for several hours in the middle of the sun and the wind is tired.

Mr. Ut said, with the works are completely covered with glass, the cleaning is quite simple. The speed of slow depends on the skill of each worker. Ledged buildings are harder to clean.
