Apologist for Neoliberal Globalism Says Workers Who Died in Bangladesh Fire “Wanted and Needed” Those Jobs

(Yes, they “needed” those jobs because they didn’t “want” to starve in the slave-labor free-trade zone market economy our businesses and politicians set up in Bangladesh. Not surprisingly many Walmart products are made at the factory.)

from Raw Story

A Fox Business host said Monday that the 112 Bangladesh workers killed in a factory fire over the weekend were actually thankful just to have jobs, regardless of their working conditions.

“It is tragic,” contributor Charles Payne said, appearing on “Your World” with host Neil Cavuto. “I don’t think something like this will happen again. Don’t think that the people in Bangladesh who perished didn’t want or need those jobs, as well.”

In the wake of the deadly blaze, one of three recent factory fires in Bangladesh, authorities cited lax safety conditions, non-working fire extinguishers and a distinct lack of emergency exits, which could have saved dozens of lives. Workers also claimed that when fire alarms began to sound in the factory, managers for the factory’s owner, Tazreen Fashions Ltd., told everyone there was no emergency and that the employees should get back to work.

  1. This stuff is the same kind of shit slave owners used to tell all their slaves: “Just be grateful I’m keeping you alive rather than letting you starve to death.”

    An age old propaganda trick of being thankful to the very forces that created your poverty in the first place and force your hand to do whatever you have to in order to stay alive.

  2. So, the unions in this country are desperate, the guy says–and lots of people fall for his shit. Truth is, the unions in this country, as they used to be, are history–killed off by The Street, for the likes of Walmart.

    But, how did they erase that history from the collective memory, I wonder–a history that’s not that distant. I don’t know, but it’s is a peek at what’s to come once they get hold of the schools.
