In Bangladesh, men desperate for work perform one of the world's most dangerous jobs. They demolish huge ships in grueling conditions, braving disease, pollution, and the threat of being crushed or stabbed by steel sliced from the hulls. ➡ Subscribe: http://bit.ly/NatGeoSubscribe #NationalGeographic #Ships #Bangladesh About National Geographic: National Geographic is the world's premium destination for science, exploration, and adventure.

Now a days, situation had changed. investors be care full to prevent pollution. They improve worker's health, accommodation, sanitation, recreation etc and to reduce accident they use capital machines instide of labour. They established a medical hospital for labour health.

Noone forced them to do it. They wan't to do it, otherwise they wouldn't. Their lives, their responsibility. You just want bigger government to coerce people, because you are parasite.
Georg Wilde (5 days ago)
No. None of them is being forced to break the ships. Hunger is not a coercion, hunger doesn't make you unfree. Why don't they do what they did before ship breaking? Why don't they farm? Simply because they choose to do ship breaking in own self interest.

Insanecoment (6 days ago)
These ships should have been built so that they would be easy and safe to break at the end of their lifespand with only materials that are easy to re-use. This should be enforced by law, worldwide. Atleast today! Is this a good idea? Or will there always be a country with no laws to produce "cheaper" ships?

Any human life is a human existence - meaning if you're alive - then enjoy it! - How many people die on American freeways? Should we shut those down? How many people die of food poising in the entire world? Should we stop eating? Anyway - humans have been surviving in dangerous ways since the beginning. Being alive in the key - once a human has achieved life - there is no failure.

"...workers are forced to" ?? Who is forcing them and why are you allowing them? I bet those workers are there of their own free will because that's the only/most profitable job they could find. So stop bullshitting and start with the fact that Bangladesh is a banana republic composed of people who have no capabilities in nation building. Yeah. It is the shipping companies' fault that they are in these awful living conditions. Let's start with them, and not the government.
