SHIPBREAKERS OF CHITTAGONGAdd to Cart Add to Lightbox
BANGLADESH CHITTAGONG MADHOM BIBIR HAT OCT00 - Labourers carry onto land any loose fittings from a recently beached ship. Doors, furniture and bathroom fittings fetch good prices on local markets and add to the income of the ship-breaking entrepreneurs who are primarily concerned with recycling the scrap metal...Several thousand labourers work on one medium-sized (50,000 ton) ship for a period of around three months, until it is completely dismantled and taken apart. ..Since Bangladesh does not possess mineral resources such as iron ore, it works out more cost-efficient to employ a large army of day-labourers to recycle the scrapped ships rather than to import ore. On average, a labourer can expect to earn a little more than 1 US Dollar per day...jre/Photo by Jiri Rezac..© Jiri Rezac 2000..Contact: +44 (0) 7050 110 417.Mobile: +44 (0) 7801 337 683.Office: +44 (0) 20 8968 9635..Email: firstname.lastname@example.org.Web: www.jirirezac.com..© All images Jiri Rezac 2000 - All rights reserved.
