Mac Unday,13, pounds on a steel bar, protruding out of a cement post he finds in an abandoned lot on E. Jacinto Extension. If he succeeds in taking it out, the steel bar will sell at P11 per kilo in a junk shop. Mac has seven siblings. His mother, a laundrywoman, and his father, a housepainter, hardly earn anything in a day. ( photo by Barry Ohaylan)
