What is it going to take for Western retailers to respect Bangladeshi workers' rights?! The fact that Bangladeshi garment workers still have to fight for a wage increase, even after the horrific factory collapse that killed thousands of workers back in April of this year, says a lot about how much Western retailers and factory owners don't care about their own workers! It is clear that consumers living in the West need to put even more pressure on Western retailers to improve working conditions for Bangladeshi garment workers--Western retailers and factory owners won't change until they are forced to!
On May 22, 2013 I conducted an email interview with Arif Ullah, who is advocating for better working conditions for Bangladeshi garment workers. Please help him put pressure on Western retailers to respect Bangladeshi workers' rights by signing his petition: http://www.change.org/petitions/jc-penney-gap-co-put-an-end-to-the-murders-of-garment-workers-in-bangladesh
