System-immanent poverty in Western Europe

Based on the graffiti and the men seen coming and going under the bridge, the bridge is being used as a shelter by Eastern European migrant workers attracted by the disparity in standard of living between Eastern and Western Europe. From my own circle of friends i am keenly aware of the conditions under which migrant people live and work in Berlin.
