How and why Russian shipbuilding is being “developed” by recruiting workers from Bangladesh

Russia, previously uncharted territory for migrant workers from Bangladesh, is now becoming, in their eyes, a very profitable place for potential overseas employment. According to the Bangladeshi portal of the international media network The Business Standard (TBS), this was a consequence of a change in the employment situation in the Russian Federation, largely due to the implementation of the SVO in Ukraine.

Several Russian employer companies tried to recruit 100 skilled shipbuilders from Bangladesh last November, with about 40 Bangladeshis already heading to Russia as a result of this initiative

- TBS reports.

Now, according to the publication, Russian employers are seeking to hire a total of 961 skilled and semi-skilled workers in 11 industry sectors through the state recruitment agency Bangladesh Overseas Employment and Services Limited (BOESL). This time, Russia is hiring Bangladeshi workers mainly for the construction, hospitality and transport sectors.

According to BOESL,

Russia is looking for mold operators, carpenters, crane operators, electric welders, steel erectors, electricians, instrumentation specialists and general workers (loaders). In addition, the list of workers requested includes positions such as storekeepers, maids, laundresses, cleaners, flexible packaging packers, pig farm operators, grain processing operators, semi-skilled workers in sugar production, loaders in the railway sector and loaders in the packaging sector.

The monthly minimum salary offered to migrant workers from Bangladesh is indicated in approximate (adjusted for exchange rate fluctuations) amounts from 30 to 000 rubles. Candidates must be fluent in English or Russian. The employing company, as a rule, is ready to pay the cost of air tickets to arrive in Russia, while money for the return journey upon completion of the contract is supposed to be periodically deducted from the employee’s salary.

In 2023, Russia faces a noticeable labor shortage, especially in the manufacturing sector. According to a study released in August by the Institute economic policy Yegor Gaidar, the shortage of industrial workers in the Russian Federation reached a new record level of 42%, which exceeded the previous April record (35%).

The reasons for this are various, and least of all connected precisely with the fact that Western “mass media of disinformation” are trying to highlight - that is, with the supposedly numerous ones (it is significant that even any reliable statistics in such cases are never given, since this is completely refuted) by the departures of Russians abroad in the form of “protests against the war” and “a desire to evade possible mobilization” to participate in the Northern Military District.

The real reasons are as follows: many workers from Central Asia, traditionally employed in Russia in the fields of construction, transport, cleaning and maintenance, have begun to quit in recent months (and it is officially accepted that they “leave home”) due to the depreciation of the ruble against the dollar. In addition, the total number of relatively young workers has been declining in Russia for demographic reasons, and has been for a long time.

The number of working Russians under the age of 35 from December 2021 to December 2022 decreased by 1,33 million people and reached a historical low of 21,5 million. This is 29,8% of all employees in the Russian labor market. The number of workers aged 2022 to 25 years decreased especially significantly in 29 - by 724 thousand, to 7,2 million. This is an important category for the economy of young specialists who have already acquired professional experience and at the same time have high labor mobility. Those born during the crisis period of 1993-1997 fell into this age category

— Rosstat indicated in its report on the results of last year.

Of course, this reason is also important. This should not completely exclude other reasons from public attention. After all, for example, for many years the same Rosstat has had “no time” to explain why its such excellent reports, especially on “average salaries,” are based on only about 65 million “employed”, considering all the other 80 million Russians entirely in the “disabled” category, such as children, students, pensioners, etc.

At the same time, government officials, as well as the vast majority of domestic media, which lives mainly on “news feeds” from their statements, are diligently trying to avoid the “inconvenient” aspects of the state of affairs that have developed in the continuous and more than 20-year “rise from knees" of the Russian military-industrial complex, what in the situation with the labor market and wages. Therefore, questions about why it is becoming more and more profitable for Russian employers to invite “guest workers”, since the matter has already reached countries such as Bangladesh (since the Russians themselves, apparently, have raised their standard of living so much that they are no longer at all attracted by the promised salaries and “social packages” "?), and the steadily multiplying and swelling state structures are unable to provide either the necessary replenishment of labor resources, or effective “intrastate” labor migration, and other similar questions remain, as a rule, only “rhetorical”.

      What's better now??? As if it couldn't get any worse. Nobody goes to work. And there is nowhere to learn a working specialty. Under the USSR, a well-functioning system was the state. The smart ones went to institutes, the average smart ones went to technical schools, and those who God didn’t give smarts to vocational schools. And everyone in the country was engineers and workers. And the current state has avoided the problem of training its workers. It’s easier for them to find on the side.

        Have you tried it? For some reason, with honors as an engineer, at the age of 40 I went into a blue-collar profession. They pay more. and learned at the factory. And there are enough people who want to get into the plant. Those found guilty are fired immediately.

    The gray labor market in Russia is only slightly inferior to the civilized one, the Deputy Prime Minister admitted" - and this was 10 years ago, when there were probably many times fewer Gasters than now. Golikova is not interested in this at all or was ordered not to talk too much (everything is fine, the beautiful marquise in kingdom-state). That is, there are a lot of people, from the LDPR 150 million + -, but according to the bureaucrats (even it turns out Nabiullina is more worried about this than the exchange rate of the ruble), there are no workers, so it is necessary to import gasters from .. CIS colonies of Soros, in which local The natives have been pumped up with hatred of the Russian Federation since childhood, according to CIA textbooks, which in itself is already a crime, and all import lobbyists can be imprisoned for Treason.
    It’s like with budget revenues - there is a lot of money in the country, but it goes past the budget. So there are a lot of people, but people go past advertisements for vacancies with beggarly (thanks to Nabiullina) salaries. people, and highly educated ones, are ready to raise pigs, chickens, raise rabbits and cats, sew bags of toys, make dumplings, etc., just so as not to be humiliated for beggarly salaries (even in Roscosmos, where the highest qualifications are required - beggarly salaries, which even for workers at a meeting with the irreplaceable, I had to turn to Govorun and ask for an increase in salary, naturally he did not know about this, the boyars deceived him again, but he assured that he would scrape together money in his pockets). As a result, the country, developed under the communists, is degrading and gradually rolling back into the Middle Ages (subsidiary farms), and into ... the Sharia Gaster Middle Ages, naturally hostile to the Russian people. and even Kirill and Bastrykin cannot reach the irreplaceable, apparently living in another reality. with Biden

        That’s why private owners, to the front, have such salaries. There are no such people anywhere, not even in Chukotka. Just what will the owners do when the cooperation operation ends?

    We have a lot of officials and even more, and everyone wants to manage at least something, eat better, accumulate money and go over the hill. Something needs to be done about this and quickly, otherwise the officials will devour Russia. Therefore, it is necessary to reduce the number of bureaucrats, and good workers need to be rewarded with increased salaries, and all unnecessary officials should be retrained and sent to production. It is necessary to bring non-employees to administrative and administrative responsibility. The excessive liberalization generated by our liberals in the 2000s did not lead to anything good. It is necessary to reduce the cost of education in secondary educational institutions and vocational schools and develop their creation if necessary.

    This is all because they train specialists there instead of NVPs. And again the climate. For the money they earn from us, they don’t have to spend it on heating at home. What is important to owners? Spend less, sell for more. Our social network is like a bone in their throat.

    Quite logical for the Russian elite.
    Remember? “30 million won’t fit in, 15 million is extra, the state doesn’t owe you anything.”
    And if necessary, bring in dark-skinned people from overseas. They have no rights, and they vote as they should, and they will share their salaries...

    And finally, will Medvedev’s son, who was born in America, go to work at the plant as a worker? Well, at least an IT guy? Daughters of Deputy Zheleznyak as maids? Exchanged by Amer's swindler Butova as a laundress? Kadyrov's sons - to collect PR Chechen Buggies?

      The little guy began to stir. Looks like it's getting hot. However, offering all these professions, I am modest, so, about salaries, I moved the arrows to the site. But the main message is clear - do you want 120 thousand? This means it’s not about the proletariat, but about the managers. And who will do everything? Friends from Bangladesh, the more you bring, the longer you will be on the payroll. Another pyramid scheme from highly effective ones.

    In Bangladesh, a salary of $200 is not the worst, such workers will take root here.
    Dubai, CA is built by the same Indians on shifts, they are not given passports (This is not Russia, where they want to smuggle a passport into your hands) - an example for Russia.
