Can we afford to look the other way?
Not my problem. They were brought in by contractors and abandoned by contractors. So the contractors responsible should take care of their problems. There were 179 Bangladeshi workers out of job, out of money, out of food, and no where to go. Who should do something to help them? Like it or not, they now become a social problem to everyone. The whole process of bringing in foreign workers and the problems arising is going to fall flat on the citizens and the govt. The contractors are going to abscond and the people and govt will have to pick up the pieces. For these poor workers, sending them back is only the beginning of their bigger problems. They have a huge debt to settle that the cannot be settled without a job and an income here. And now it is only 179. It can be 1790 or 17900. Then what?
