Building Bridges, the National Edition
with Mimi Rosenberg & Ken Nash
*******
The Blood, Sweat & Tears Of Bangladesh’s Garment Workers
Stain The Clothes of Multi-National Corps. Who Reap Huge
Profits From Workers' Misery
with
Barbara Briggs, Asst. Dir., Institute for Global Labor & Human Rights
and
Kalpona Atker, Ex. Dir., Bangladesh Center for Worker Solidarity

To date, more than 500 are confirmed dead, 2,044 people have been
rescued, more than 1,000 of them injured and 1,000 people are
unaccounted for, or still trapped inside the concrete wreckage of the
collapsed garment factory in Bangladesh.  Meanwhile, the Western
multinational corporations who subcontract sewing their brands to
Bangladesh, an economy where 80% of its exports are from the
apparel trade stubbornly refuse to join workplace safety plans in
Bangladesh.  They still refuse to compensate the injured and the
families of those who previously died sewing their brands. Since the
infamous Tazreen factory fire blaze in November where 112 died there
have been dozens more factory fires since and now hundreds killed
in this week's Rana Plaza building collapse.  How many people will
have to sacrifice their lives for the corporate bottom line?

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
