It's 9 a.m. on a Tuesday and Fidencio Sedano is on his way to work. He doesn't wear a uniform. He steps outside into the blistering heat where he spends most of the day, almost every day, walking in 100-degree weather. He wears washed-out jeans, a short-sleeved, buttoned-up shirt over his thin, tanned body.
