Put at Risk the Life of the Workers

The article of BBC news posted on October 3rd, 2013 is abut the unsafely conditions of work of the citizens living in Bangladesh. In fact, many reports had been done about many fires that happened inmany factories. The last occurred in a clothing factory; only nine bodies on 1000 have been found and recognized. Last November, 112 workers were killed in a fire; 2,500 people were injured in another catastrophe in the Ashulia. The principal cause of these terrible situations is the lack of safety machines that is used in these factories, and had been standardized very poor. Also, the country is not weel equipped concerning the water for the fire men. Indeed, when a fire happened they were not able to stop it in time because the fire stations are not nearby the cities. When a machine exploded and provoked a fire, many people are stuck i nthe building and can not get out because it has not be construct safely. So, many of them are sacrifice and all the workers put ther life in danger every time they go working, and often a catastrophe occured when people do overtime, they are tired so, it is easy to do a bad move with their unsafely machines.

According to me, it is not acceptable that nothing had been done since the last year and the loss of too many citizens. Clothing factories are also around three-quarters of Bangladesh export, if every of them are burned they will not be able to produce. They have to construct safety buildings and put security measures for the employees and to get out if something bad happens. They have to considered to put a fire station nearby establishments.

This is shocking to read an article when it treats about people risking their lives to go working.When a country provides work to its citizens it has the obligation to create a safe structure.Workers shouldn't be afraid to go working or even to say goodbye to their family fearing that it will be the last time they would see them.Working is an opportunity to develop the wealth and the increase the conditions of everyone living within the borders of the country.It is not suppose to be a life-death threat.

This blog post interested me mainly because I cannot imagine it ever being legal for people to work in such unsafe conditions. In this day and age it is almost impossible for most Americans to imagine having to worry about the safety of their work environment. Although there are careers that are made for the very adventurous dare devil types, the majority of people work in normal everyday jobs and do not ever have to be concerned with risking their lives on a daily basis. This report that you wrote about Bangladesh does, however, remind me of a time in American history when it was not uncommon for there to be no real laws when it came to safety in the work place. During the Industrial Revolution, there were many stories of fires and dangers of working in the textile industry that remind me of what is happening in Bangladesh today. I hope that they will also be able to work out these problems before others are injured or dead and that they too will be able to rise above this and become a great power someday as well.

No one should ever have to go to work on a daily basis fearing that they would get harmed that day or in extreme cases, lose their life. It is not fair that in Bangladesh poor working conditions have been going on for so long. Only nine bodies found out of a thousand after a fire in a clothing factory fire? You have got to be kidding me! Something must be done as soon as possible and if it is the lack of safety machines that is causing this problem they should stop being used and be replaced with improved, safe new ones. These were the same problems that occurred as long ago as the Industrial Revolution, and they shouldn’t occur any longer. More fire stations should be built near these dangerous factories. I feel bad because most Americans don’t have to go to work in fear of getting hurt or killed by a fire. Jobs like being a firefighter, policeman, or army man are an exception of course—this is their choice, but the majority of Americans work regular harmless jobs. Something should be done to bring a stop to these unsafe working conditions in Bangladesh before death rates become extremely high. However, I feel that something should’ve been done since the first factory fire.

I can't believe nothing has been done already. When people are dying by the hundreds each time, there has to be some sort of action taken to help make working in these factories a lot faster. No person should work in a place where they live in fear of death, everyone is entitled to a safe work place and safety in general. I also agree that if they don't fix this more people will die and less production will be created and that will lead to less money for the country and that will make safety even less important because of lack of money.
