…the deaths of garment workers
To the Guardian article by Lucy Siegle to which the image above points, I add from what I’ve seen:
Bargaining is tough when buyers from transnationals fly down to set hourly rates with manufacturers. Decisions to move away to lower-cost sellers are taken in an instant and aggressive sellers desperate to cover overhead do everything they can (but shouldn’t) to meet target prices. Both sides are at fault in this dynamic, so it is the market economy that’s at fault, and who can change this situation but roused people moving their governments?
