Bangladesh garment workers continue to suffer

Global brands, which get their clothes manufactured there, ignore vital safety measures for workers.

    Serious concerns for the safety of garment workers in Bangladesh have continued after a factory fire killed 112 employees last month.

    Rights activists say major clothing brands, including Western companies such as Wallmart, are ignoring vital safety measures in order to keep manufacturing costs low.
