because people speak English
I’m trying to think about ‘Garment Factory Collapses in Bangladesh’, English Club news from 30 April 2013
Starting this, I will say that I’m a little confused. It can be really a controversial issue, I think. There is one temptation to be said instantly that the important people from the big garment brands treat these workers from Bangladesh like slaves and that it’s necessary for the big bosses to accept these poor men and women like something valuable and even precious for their firms and businesses. To take really care for them, not to use corrupt people, their fellow-countrymen (maybe I'm making a mistake, but here I'm thinking about the owner of the collapsed building), to make only exploitation and the big profits possible. But honestly, I think, herе we encounter the real difficulties and the great differences. It’s not a secret that one firm (something like one small nation) is similar to a human organism – one mind, one heart, one blood. If the rhythm is not correct and if there is no sense of unity, the firm, like one organism, will suffer and be ill. And here comes the main question: how to achieve the same rhythm between the bosses’ hearts and minds and these of the poor Bangladesh workers. Sounds like a joke, but not very funny one, really.
At the risk of sounding like a preacher I will say that only God can solve such a difficult task. This Sunday in our country we celebrate Easter and know that Jesus Christ (as true God and true Man) bridged the gap between God and every man. There is no question about a company or about one nation. There is a question for humanity as a whole. And it refers to the Church as a divine-human organism. What do you think: what would the bosses of the big garment brands say about this? And the poor workers from Bangladesh: what would they say?
