Report: A Year After Bangladesh Disaster, Retailers Fail to Address Biggest Factory Risks
When Sarah Labowitz arrived in Bangladesh's capital city of Dhaka this past February, it certainly didn't look like nine months had passed since the factory collapse that claimed 1,129 lives. Outside the ruin of the eight-story Rana Plaza building, the streets remained covered in mountains of twisted metal and rubble. Bright bolts of fabric still sat where they'd landed on April 24, 2013, among the bricks and rags. "Rana Plaza is still overwhelming in the magnitude of its tragedy," said Labowitz this week, having returned from Bangladesh.
