Bangladesh garment workers continue to suffer

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

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