A group of illegal migrants warm themselves by a fire in the grounds of an industrial estate where they sleep outside while they wait for work picking olives. The picking season starts in November when thousands of seasonal workers arrive to work in the groves. This is work usually carried out by migrant workers from overseas but the collapse in Spain's economy and rocketing levels of unemployment has led to many Spaniards seeking to work as pickers, labour they had previously shunned.
