Story | Jun 21, 2013 | 2:10 PMMore than a thousand workers were killed in Bangladesh when a building used as a garment factory collapsed. It's alleged that a factory in China making products for Apple has nets installed to stop people leaping to their deaths after 18 suicides there. And in Pakistan, 300 people burned to death when a factory caught fire. As Westerners demand cheaper goods, the use of so-called "sweatshops" abroad has rocketed. But the goods are cheaper because "[t]he global proliferation of sweatshops has driven the income and working conditions of garment, electronics and other factory workers to the absolute rock bottom," according to an article on TruthOut.org. After the Bangladesh disaster, retail giant Walmart severed its relationship with the supplier who used the factory. Other corporations have got together to fund inspections of buildings or to monitor workers' conditions. But some argue that it's too little, too late.
