She's getting overtime for this, right?
 
2013-05-10 10:26:30 AM
I'm glad they found her alive.  Not only did she survive, but now she can speak out as a witness against the buildings owners.

kbronsito: She's getting overtime for this, right?


yep. she gets $2 this month.  And they might throw in a $0.50 being buried alive bonus, but probably not, because then they all would want it.

I highly doubt she was doing work during the time she was buried.  No work, no pay.

Not only that, the family is also out the $3.50 accidental death stipend.

I don't think her testimony will be necessary.

How else can you get cheap clothes at T-K Max?
 
2013-05-10 10:55:22 AM
I think the real problem over there is labor unions and government regulation.
 
2013-05-10 10:55:30 AM
This kind of thing will happen more often as people continue to demand cheap clothes at Target and JCPenny. The Shockingly High Cost of Cheap Fashion  does a great job explain why our system is so farked up.
 
2013-05-10 10:56:31 AM
Oh wow, and my first greenlight!

I'm just f*cking amazed that she's still alive. I was pretty sure 1 week without water was generally pretty goddamn fatal? Just.. how is she not dead of dehydration?

This was what this would've been like in America had not the Triangle Fire happened, and exposed us to those conditions.

...so most of those companies moved the factories to places like Bangladesh, where Americans don't care.

I would say that using sweat shops to provide cheap clothes is not as bad as using sweat shops to provide expensive clothes. At least you are passing on some of the exploitation savings to the consumers. Banana Republic used to have terrible factories in El Salvador and a few other countries and still wanted to charge $90 for a shirt. IDK if they have gotten better though. Last I read they had been shamed into some oversight by a group of NGOs to make sure they had decent working conditions.

Answer from the Article: "She may have reserves of water or have drunk some of the water that we've pumped into the building," Ahmed Ali told AFP."

I think 3-5 days without water is fatal.

At least with expensive clothing you have a choice of buying made in America/Canada/Western Europe for the same price. Sure you can spend $300 for those Prada shoes made in China but Allen Edmond makes shoes in the USA for the same price.

There is no way American manufacturers can compete with $3 t shirts or $10 jeans. The average amount of income spend on clothing has decreased from nearly 15% in the 50s, when most things were made here to only 5% today.

Probably she was in a high humidity air pocket, or she had water trickling on her. What kills you is losing water, more than not drinking water. If you arenèt losing water from sweating or respiration, then urination is the only thing left. In a high humidity environment, you can last a much longer time than otherwise.

Not after the bribes exonerate the owners completely.

What a terrible death that would be. Pinned down and slowly watching the water level rise.
Ugh...

What a miracle! And they just opened another dungeon-like hellhole for her to spend the rest of her life working 18 hour days in right down the street!

There must be a god.

Omg, the smells that she had to endure during that time. In addition to being undoubtedly undernourished, the mental trauma of all of those decomposing bodies just feet away from her.

They'll join the American / European bankers who toppled the world's economy in make-believe prison.

Negligence leading to a pile of dead garment workers.

as opposed to the thousands of others that survived the collapse?
 
2013-05-10 11:35:00 AM
I'm just not buying it.  She snuck in under the rubble when no one was looking and hung out for a few days waiting.

there was a fark story of a puppy that survived being trapped in a car for a month without water.  also, i saw a show about some guy lost in caves - in kentucky or something like that - with no food or water for 20 days that survived.

Other news sources are saying she had bottles of water nearby and dried fruits that she rationed (and ran out of a couple of days ago).  She was also able to walk, though she was carried out of there.

The report I heard this morning said she found food and water in the prayer room (where she was when the building collapsed apparently), but had just run out of water 2 days ago.

SlothB77: some guy lost in caves - in kentucky or something like that - with no food or water for 20 days that survived.


That seems biologically impossible. He may not have had a water bottle, but he had to have gotten SOME water. And even if it was condesnation or something, there is often moisture in caves. I know I'd be licking a wet stalagtite.

/that's what SHE said.
 
2013-05-10 12:26:54 PM
What sucks is that the article doesn't actually say they're rescued her yet. Just that she's been located and she's talking to them.

spentmiles: Unfortunately, in the process of pulling out from beneath the rubble, her head scarf came loose so they were forced to smash her skull with a rock.


Funny. But I don't believe this is you - way too short and not out in left field.

Yea, I thought that too, but I didn't want to go there. We are, afterall, just sacks of meat. And fat. Lots and lots of fat (in my case, my tits... sigh).

Heck, she OWES the owner money.  Those bottles of water she drank aren't free!
