No.. he is the enslaved kid who has to keep it going or starve. He probably gets paid less than a cup of rice.. and works 20 hours a day.. and what you see IS his bed as well as his workplace. This doesnt have a happy ending... so very sad,

It's a tough life in Myanmar... I hope that it will improve (and as it seems it does although very slowly).

A very touching photo!
