Capitalism; cutting corners since 1500

By Leon J Williams

Yesterday there was a fire at a factory in the southeastern Turkish province of Gaziantep which has killed at least 8 workers and injured at least 12 others.

The reason for this may or may not be connected to the fact that the metal processing plant hired workers illegally to keep costs down, two of which were Syrian.

The cause of the fire was an explosion after the pressure in the boilers became too great.

How many times must companies and governments (who are in the pockets of businesses) put profits before peoples lives before something is done about it? When is enough, enough?
