Who is to blame for the building collapse in Bangladesh? The owners, engineers and architects, or the end users and consumers who great the demand for low cost textile products?
Gerald Celente director of the “Trends Research Institute” argues that the prevailing view is one of “profits before people”, he says this attitude has grown as manufacturing has moved to countries where labour is cheap and rights and regulations are not secure.
Bankers that worked in the building were told to stay at home on the day of the collapse; textiles workers however, were expected to work on despite cracks having been spotted in the building’s walls.
