Pakistan shipbreaking yard workers underpaid

Labourers earn $5 per tonne they scrap whilst owners make many times that selling recycled steel.

    Gadani Beach in Pakistan is the third largest ship breaking yard in the world.

    Unlike its shipbreaking rivals India and Bangladesh, Pakistan has no labour laws governing this kind of work.

    The workers here only get an average $5 per tonne they scrap whilst ship breaking yard owners make many times that selling the recycled steel.

    Al Jazeera's Imran Khan reports from Gadani Beach in Southern Pakistan.
