Palestinian labourers ride a pick-up truck as they make their way to illegally cross Israel's controversial barrier in the southern West Bank June 22, 2013. There are two ways for Palestinian workers to cross into Israel every day. The separation barrier that snakes through the West Bank is made up of mostly fences and some cement walls. It is the primary hurdle for the Palestinian workers who cross illegally into Israel, and it comes with different risks. Those with work permits can pass through a military checkpoint after a several hours wait. Those without have to cut through the security fence and sneak across the border risking arrest, a fine or imprisonment. Both ways are time consuming but the rewards are four times the amount of pay you can earn in the West Bank. Picture taken June 22, 2013. REUTERS/Ammar Awad (WEST BANK - Tags: SOCIETY)
