"Sherpa" - the movie

11–15 of 15

  • russell brice the kiwi who runs Himalayan expeditions on everest and employs a lot of sherpas and porters never had any issues of violence from those he employed. seems it was a minority group that had a run in with simone moro, an italian who spoke his mind impulsively when he clashed with one of the sherpas high on the mountain... and the rest is history..
  • so you're a high altitude sherpa. you are literally putting your life on the line a significant number of times for the future of your family, to guide someone to the top of the world. but it pays a lot better than any other job you're going to get, so you can raise your kids to get a decent education and get out of the poverty trap so they dont have to work in those conditions
  • Nice thought except that a large portion of the travel companies that employ these guides pay them slave wages. Ive heard of Himalayan Expeditions and they are one of the good guys but still they reward the Sherpas at a level which wouldnt stand here. The problem is not that they dont want to pay more. Its that they have to have costs comparable to the other cowboys or they dont have customers. Only way wages go up for these Sherpas is when the government dictates they must but then they would have to put the wages up for everyone else not working in tourism as well. Its like here so many tourism jobs only pay minimum wage or just above. Some jobs pay the minimum hourly rate but only when there is work. Ski lift operators get a little over min wage but if the snows no good they aint being paid. You can take it as a fair bet that if the operators were allowed to pay less they would
  • yes its still low wages with the sherpas being the best paid.
