Bangladesh factory workers worry about future

Closures of garment factories deemed unsafe leave many workers without a stable source of income.

    Workers in Bangladesh face an uncertain future as garment factories deemed unsafe by international inspectors are shut down in the wake of deadly accidents.

    The garment industry is the country's largest and the closures are leaving many workers without a stable source of income.

    Under inspection agreements, factory owners are meant to continue paying affected staff while they repair their buildings to required standards. However, some employees worry that this is not always the case.
