Who are these guys?

The illustration for todays question (apologies if its disappeared by the time you’ve read this.)
The guy digging is American, right. I’m guessing the guy in shorts is swiss/german (right?) Where the hell is the guy in the bedsheets from?

What illustration? Where? What link? I’m SO confused …

Oops, sorry about that.

I meant the illustration to the right beside todays question.

I suspect the guy with the sheet might be death…

The person by the timeclock is a Muslim woman (in full [whatever the word is] covered head-to-toe as per sharia) clocking out using a tampon, re: the menstrual leave mentioned in the report.

After reexamining the picture I see that screech is correct, good call screech!!!
