Tony, an Iban Indigenous Person from the interior of Dalat in Mukah, Sarawak has been working as a construction worker for more than ten years. Sadly his wages remain low and his situation is not likely to change in the near future. The rising cost of living and his low salary makes Tony very anxious as he continues to support his son who is still in primary school. Tony’s story represents the lives of many in Sarawak. Due to lack of employment opportunities and inadequate infrastructure in the village, increasing number of families and youths are now forced to work in the city.

Tony, seorang lelaki Iban dari kawasan pedalaman Dalat di Mukah, Sarawak telah berkerja sebagai buruh pembinaan selama lebih sepuluh tahun. Namun demikian, Tony masih menerima gaji murah dan situasinya namapak tidakakan berubah dalam masa terdekat. Kos sara hidup yang tinggi dan gaji yang rendah meresahkan Tony. Tambahan lagi, beliau kini mempunyai anak yang amsih di sekolah rendah. Kisah Tony ini mewakili ramai lagi dari Sarawak. Disebabkan kekurangan peluang kerja dan infrastruktur di kampung, lebih ramai anak muda dan keluarga kini terpaksa mencari rezeki di bandar-bandar.
