$40 Million to Rana Plaza Victims


Good news that the European retailers contracting for clothing at the Rana Plaza factory in Bangladesh that collapsed in April and killed 1100 workers have agreed to pay $40 million in compensation. It remains to be seen to what extent the money gets to survivors or the families of the deceased, but it is a positive step. Notably lacking of course are the American companies, especially Wal-Mart and Gap, who clearly do not care one whit about dead workers and have avoided all responsibility in much the same way that clothing makers in 1911 avoided all responsibility for the Triangle Fire.
