Bangladesh is the world’s second-largest garment exporter with apparel shipments from its 4,500 garment factories accounting for 80 percent of its $27-billion annual exports.

But the vast majority of the impoverished nation’s three million workers earn a basic monthly wage of 3,000 taka ($38) — among the lowest in the in the world — following a tripartite deal between unions, the government and manufacturers in August 2010.

Dozens of factories were forced to shut Saturday as workers left their machines. Angry demonstrators hurled bricks and stones at the outsides of some 20 factories after they refused to allow some employees to join the protests, Rahman said.

Thats like 1920's middle class wages in the united states...

I'd be forced to live in a cardboard box out in the woods and driven by starvation to steal food and drinks from the local dollar store if I made that much money in taxachusetts now...

It's crazy, poverty is a commodity. sad2.gif

Quote:Factory owners have rejected the demand, saying they can raise wages by only 20 percent to 3,600 taka due to gloomy global economic conditions

Oh ffs! gaah.gif The main reason Bangladesh is the world’s second-largest garment exporter is because they basically work for free and have very few environmental or work safety laws. There's a need for poor countries so that corporations can maximize their profits. gaah.gif Demand more wages and they'll move production to some other dirt poor country that can be exploited.

So theres one group of american leaders publicly complaining about how theres not enough jobs in the united states...

While another group of ceos and industrialists are allowed to continuously send countless jobs overseas into virtual slave labor third world hell holes...

To ensure that those greedy ceos and industrialist bastards maintain their megabucks incomes and lavish lifestyles for themselves and their friends and families...

As wave after wave of hush hush envelopes stuffed with $100 bills are perpetually passed around between them behind the scenes out of sight...

Mutha f###en two faced back stabbing elite bastards!!!

What the f##k!?!?!?
