Mexico could be on the rise to become one of the world's manufacturing powers. The workforce is already there, now it's up to companies and people to build jobs for the citizens and immigrants moving in. Amazingly, a country which had so much migration away from the country is now moving back, and with they're not doing it alone but with people from around the world. "Build it and they will come". That being said, Mexico not only has appealing labor rates compared to China and other areas of the world, but the proximity to the United States makes opportunity very appealing. Being next to the U.S., a country which imports so much of its supplies, can be a gold mine for Mexico. In the future it is possible for the tables to turn. Where there was once Mexicans crossing the border for work, it could be Americans crossing the border into Mexico for work. An extreme statement, but anything can happen in this day and age.
We all love chocolate. We all love diamonds and jewels. In western worlds, these items are easily come by in grocery stores and elsewhere, but what got them there was a challenge. People in poorer tropical regions around the world worked to get the raw goods of these delicate items we all enjoy. The payout difference is immense from cocoa to chocolate. It is sometimes a very crooked market where if it wasn't for the hard working people who get the raw ingredients, chocolate as we know it wouldn't be the same.
Workers at an ailing paper mill in Siberia are clinging to their jobs in the face of financial pressure and criticism from environmentalists.
The environment, industry and politics play key roles in this story of an old style Soviet mono-town on Lake Baikal. Monotowns had planned economies that revolved around one industry and today many of these are struggling in the post-Soviet era. While the particulars of the political situation are a bit dated, the overall issue is still quite relevant to understanding Russia today.
The story of this particular mono-town is very tough to "pick sides". The factory undoubtedly pollutes the air and land like most other industrial areas, but being so close to Lake Baikal gives environmentalists a stronger reason to complain. The lake is considered one of the purest and most unique in the world, yet the paper mill located on its banks raise controversy. This is where the locals and workers are stuck between a rock and hard place. Located in Siberia, such a vast and open region with little settlements compared to the western part of the country reminds the people living there that their resources are limited. Closing down the factory would almost eliminate income and economy for the mono-town. This is where the fine line is drawn; the workers surely aren't happy about the pollution and environmental hazards that go along with keeping the mill open, but at the same time the people could wither away if it wasn't up and running.
This is an incredible video because of the shocking footage of blatant disregard for worker safety. This can lead to an interesting discussion concerning how China has been able to have its economy grow. What other ways has China (or Chinese companies) been "cutting corners?" How does that give them a competitive edge on the global industrial market?
This guy is crazy! This just happened to be captured on video but who knows the other stunts that workers go through in the country. The demand and speed of the jobs to be completed don't always take in the safety of the workers. The regulations that are set in place aren't enforced strongly, if at all, which is why you can see this guy dangling from a building. Yet at the end of the day, the job has to be done, and surely this man will not be going home with a bonus check even though he risked his life to keep up with the demanding pace set for the demolition job.
