I can’t imagine, in a million years, this happening here — at least, not anymore. Instead, they would just get another tax break and an invitation to serve on Obama’s board of CEO advisors:
Bangladesh has set up a panel to raise the minimum wage for more than three million garment workers, the minister for textiles has said.
The government is under pressure to improve conditions after last month’s collapse of a Dhaka garment factory which left more than 1,000 people dead.
Workers are also demanding the death penalty for Mohammad Sohel Rana, the owner of the collapsed Rana Plaza complex.
A number of people have been arrested and charged with causing deaths by negligence, including Mr Rana, his father and several engineers.
