Compressor mining is a highly dangerous activity in which miners dive 30 feet underwater using only a plastic tube to breathe. Some stuff their ears with cotton and wear masks to protect their eyes. When they reach the bottom of the pit they dig out the earth and place it into rice sacks, which are hoisted to the surface for sifting. Divers get paid twice the amount of other workers.
