In 2013 imaginable tragedy struck when the Rana Plaza garment factory building collapsed, killing more than 500 Bangladeshi garment workers.

Despite the many warnings of dangerous cracks in the walls reported to supervisors, police and in the media the garment workers who make our inexpensive clothes were still sent to work – to death.

Discussion starters:

1. What might change in MNCs like Walmart and other retailers demanded change in worker safety and in working conditions? 

2.  Would you be willing to pay more for your shirts if workers in Bangladesh garment factories were safe?
