Our thoughts today go out Dhaka, Bangladesh. It is dreadful that governments continue to allow garment workers to die or suffer terrible, disabling injuries in unsafe factories making clothes for western nations’ shoppers. How many more lives must be lost or crushed before ministers, companies and consumers act to stop these scandalous human tragedies? Shame on you The Children’s Place, Joe Fresh, Primark, New Wave Style, Ether Tex, Canton Tech Apparel and New Wave Bottoms. Since 2005, more than 700 garment workers have died in Bangladesh, according to the International Labor Rights Forum.
