No safety measures...no fire extinguishing equipment...no checks and balances to prevent industrial accidents...laborers work in unsafe toxic environments..and in Sialkot...5% ruling elite control all the wealth...and 95% poor labor population survive on Rs. 15-25 k monthly income... there exists no middle class in Sialkot...with the doings of mir sadiqs and mir jafers...entire Pakistan is becomeingSialkot!

@Pacman, thats not entirely true. Yes the elite who have invested millions in their businesses get the most back thats logical for who invest those should get it back for their investment, naye tou sarey uth k chalay jaye abroad and pakistan ki export b band kar dain... Secondly the toxic environments do exist, many businesses dont give proper care to employees, but many employees also dont wear the safety equipment because they arent used to working with them, majority uneducated hai workers unfortunately so they dont know how important it is for their health but they refuse it. And yes, there definitely exists a middle class, all the managers, COO's, supervisors are within middle class for all the businesses in Sialkot. Even many workers have their own farm lands where twice a year they harvest a crop and make passive income from this secondary income stream. Thirdly, the basic income is not 25k its 32,000 pkr. Anyone getting less are interns or students. workers unions exist...
