America moved manufacturing to India's cheaper market. Sadly, India hasn't realized the value of labor. Manufacturing measures life of far less value than the product to get to the consumer marketplace. Of course the United States was and is, supportive of moving an annual US$20 billion to owners of transnational corporations, in India.
Americans get to be the colony harvested for entrepreneurial enterprising, to then have the Republic's rights' ignored for another cheaper labor camp. The costs are afforded by Americans', military and whatever necessity arises, to protect the "investments".
Doesn't mean the earth has gotten to be a better place to live. Look up Bangladesh and wonder why few images are available to SEE how reality looks:
Arrest sparks clashes amid Dhaka rescue, By Syed Tashfin Chowdhury
DHAKA - The weekend arrest of Mohammad Sohel Rana, owner of the Rana
Plaza, the factory building on the outskirts of Dhaka that collapsed on
Wednesday and has so far resulted in the deaths of at least 398 people,
has brought some sense of closure for apparel workers. Rana had been on
the run since the building fell down.
As rescuers continue trying to pull survivors out of the rubble of the
eight-story building, which contained several garment factories, family
members of the nearly 700 workers still missing amid the rubble
demonstrated at the disaster site in the Dhaka suburb of Savar. Some
2,437 people were injured in the collapse. Clashes took place between
police and workers on Narayanganj
and Gazipur highway on Monday as the workers demanded the death of the well-connected businessman.
Rana, whose political connections span the country's main parties, was
arrested on Sunday by the Rapid Action Battalion (RAB) near the Benapole
border of Bangladesh with India following a manhunt.
Rana, after being produced before the media, said that owners of the
clothing factories had forced him to allow them to enter the building
for work at the factories despite signs that the building was unsafe as
"their shipments would otherwise be cancelled".
The collapse and previous factory disasters have highlighted the poor
working conditions in Bangladesh garment factories, which produce
clothing for top international brands. It was the deadliest tragedy in
an industry that is worth US$20 billion annually. As the second phase of
the rescue continues at Savar, clashes between workers and police are
being reported from adjoining areas as workers and loved ones demand at
least the recovery of the bodies of these deceased.
