The High Price Of Greed

  Broadcast in News

Call in to speak with the host

Last week, a building collapse in the impoverished, low-wage nation of Bangladesh caused a death toll of over 400 dead and 2,500 injured:

Perhaps the most heartbreaking aspect of this terrible tragedy is that it was completely avoidable.  In fact, the workers had noticed  huge cracks in the side of the building just the day prior and had refused to re-enter the building.  The owner of the building responded not only by threatening to not pay the workers, who survive hand-to-mouth in abject poverty, but it has also been reported that armed thugs were employed to force the workers into the building.

It wasn't enough to MURDER these poor people in one single, violent act:  These people had their entire lives stolen from them.

TUNE IN!!
