The energy company from which I retired was doing a major solar-energy installation (parabolic mirrors heating steam and boosting a coal plant) in India.
The design, the critical materials, and the top engineers were all from the USA and France, but all the workers, the equipment, foremen, etc had to be Indian (it's the law).
Since it was our job as owner, we had to be responsible for safety and had to follow our company rules. But as soon as work started, we found that the equipment operators were bringing their kids to the site with them, and they were climbing all over the moving equipment, riding the cranes, and having a big time.
We told the workers they couldn't do that, and they "downed tools". Said that their kids had no other place to go, they couldn't leave them at home while the wife worked, and that's the way it was.
We couldn't work under those conditions, they wouldn't work unless their kids could play tag on the Caterpillars, so the project folded, we lost $10 million and they were all out of a job.
There's no fixing that. East is East and West is West and never the twain shall meet ...
