Chile rocked by protests

At least eleven people have died in protests in Chile sparked by a rise in metro fares.

At least eleven people have died in protests in Chile sparked by a rise in metro fares. A state of emergency has been declared in many parts of the country. Jane Chambers is a journalist based in Santiago, and explains the background to the unrest. And we get a sense of how businesses are coping with the disruption from David Lloyd, chief executive of The Intern Group, a global company based in Santiago. Also in the programme, Boeing bosses are holding a second day of meetings after new messages, published late on Friday, intensified the crisis surrounding the company's 737 Max jet. The BBC's Theo Leggett brings us the latest developments. Plus our regular workplace commentator Heather McGregor of Edinburgh Business School considers the question of what people should wear to work.
