You may have heard about the tragedy in Bangladesh where an eight-story building collapsed last Wednesday. The building housed five garment factories that make clothing for American & European consumers and contained approximately 2500 workers. In addition, there was a bank and 300 shops. The bank employees were told to leave due to the unsafe conditions, and many of the shop workers were on strike, so they were spared. However, the garment laborers were not allowed to leave. They were told to continue working and that everything was fine.
