The Barge Workers are two employees working as part of the Barge Crew in The Beach. They speak in an extremely thick Jersey-Staten dialect.
Chris runs into them immediately after landing on the barge, and they immediately become suspicious of his odd manner of speaking. Chris attempts to explain this away as being new, and they question if he's Phill's replacement(Phill apparently being a past employee). They close in on Chris, but get knocked out by a claw crane before they can attack.
