Grief, Grind, and Glory of Work
In the weeks since the tragic (and preventable) fire at Rana Plaza in Bangladesh, which took the lives of 1,127 human beings, I have been deeply troubled. Every day millions of people face terrible conditions simply to eke out a meager living. There’s a high cost to cheap labor and many in Western countries are just starting to understand that.
Discovering these photos by the extraordinary photographer Steve McCurry captured the pain, monotomy and little moments of respite that characterize a largely ignored work force. Each of these photos are a mini masterpiece that allow us a glimpse into worlds largely unknown to most of us. Words of wisdom enhance the experience. I invite you to take a few minutes to take all these wonderful images in.
In my next post, I will be following up on this theme by exploring the world of our global supply chain and how it touches everyone in every workplace in the world.
Thanks and I hope you share this beautiful work.
