Walmart has refused to sign an agreement to improve safety and working conditions for factory workers overseas.
Bangladesh factory representatives asked Walmart, Sears, the Gap, and other retailers to chip in for fire protection. Guess who said no? Now, over 100 workers are dead.
My guess is Bangladeshi workers would also like to ‘save money and live better.’ Instead, 124 of them died while working hard to create products Americans are buying for those ‘low, low prices.’
