Video: Most U.S. Retailers Choose Not to Sign Bangladesh Factory Accord
The tragic collapse of the Rana Plaza clothing factory in Bangladesh in April that killed more than 1,200 people has brought greater pressure to increase garment building safety and worker protections. A number of European fashion companies have signed an accord to address workplace safety, but most U.S. retail firms haven't signed the pact. The factory fell just days after it was considered unsafe, but employees were told to come to work anyway.
