The people of Bangladesh are among the poorest on this planet and millions of women work under slave conditions in order to secure enough money to feed their families. They toil in unsafe factories and hundreds have died due to lack of proper and safe working conditions. During the past few months there were several horrible accidents due to lack of protection for workers. So, what does the American government do to protect the poor people of Bangladesh? It removed free trade privileges including duty free trade rights in order to punish Bangladesh manufactuers for their failure to protect workers. In other words, people who lack safe working conditions no longer will have to worry about this problem because they just lost their jobs!
The solution is simple. American manufacturers should insist that Bangladesh bosses ensure their plants are safe for workers. What exactly is hard to compehend? Protect the workers, and they do not get protected if they no longer have jobs!
