Let's have an Industrial Revolution

Now how the hell am I supposed to get my H & M t-shirts for 4 euros if a bunch of uppity workers are burning down factories in Bangladesh??

I mean really, who do they think they are demanding a pay increase and 1 day off a week? Didn't they get the memo?

"DHAKA, Bangladesh May 22, 2006 (AP)— Textile workers demanding better pay and one day off per week went on a rampage Monday at an industrial park near the Bangladeshi capital, setting fire to two factories and several buses, a domestic news agency reported." More...
The next thing you know they will be demanding to be treated like human beings and wanting all kinds of rights like French workers. "No more sweatshops for us!" they'll say, and be wanting Unions and things like social security and holidays.

No this has to be stopped now or the past 300 years of capitalism, exploitation and globalisation would have been for naught, and we can't have that can we?

OK Now.
