Hard Working Poor

Talking about Bangladesh without talking about poverty is nearly impossible. In fact, it would be irresponsible to a certain degree. But too often we talk about poverty, especially in the west, in terms of personal responsibility and consequences. "If you don't work hard, you'll be poor. If you do work hard, you can be whatever you want." Unfortunately, these tales in the west are not true in America, and are even less true in Bangladesh.

The following is a great video that was put together that looks at how hardworking the poor in Bangladesh really are.
