Protest, Bloodshed, and Death in Bangladeshi Garment Sector - Corporations' Sweatshops

Just a peek around the world at America's amazing corporate greed in action. Especially check out National Labor Committee's link below - type Wall-Mart into their site search box. Check China's Wall-Mart sweatshop wages. The facts are sickening. I may be an economist, but the glaring imbalances in global wages is beyond economic reality, no matter what other economists' dribble may say. This sweatshop situation will almost empty America of jobs befor trade realities rebalance markets to fair global ppp's if let to continue - beware, I have warned.

The corporations have had control long enough. We need a global living wages law - Now!

Washington has ripped up most all the rules and laws protecting 'democracy of the people' over the years and corporations have usurped said. All the facts to prove this are listed below on the entirety of this blog. I pray for help in the people recognizing the truth. We must take back our democracy from the corporations and their corporate bureaucracies.

Police opened fire when the workers fought back, and Kamal was killed in the gunfire. The violence did not end there. New blood stains that appeared in the drains of several factories the next morning led many workers to suspect a fresh wave of violence had occurred after Monday's initial attack. ...Article Continued
