In Bangladesh, over 100 factory workers died in an unsafe clothing factory over the weekend.
These factories exist to make the clothes that we purchase here in America. One of the factories made clothes which were ultimately sold to Walmart (through a complicated supply chain)[ADN]. Other factories in Bangladesh make clothing for brands such as Tesco, JC Penney, H&M, Marks & Spencer, Kohl’s and Carrefour [CNN].
Today, Tuesday, 27th, there is a national day of mourning in Bangladesh. Clothing factories will also be closed. Let’s add our concern, thoughts, and prayers for the people of Bangladesh, and the people around the world who make the items we need, crave, and/or purchase.
