Bangladesh Apparel Industry

As a follow-up to my last post, I was interested ('pleased' doesn't seem the appropriate word) to hear the reference (at about 4:40), in this PBS NewsHour story on workplace safety in the Bangladesh apparel industry, to the Triangle fire.  More interesting was the assertion that Bangladeshi industry representatives had tried to address safety concerns with some retailers. The business drive to keep costs low, indeed to relentlessly lower them, can be deadly.
