Bangladesh clothes workers die in factory fire

25 workers died as a result of a fire at Bangladeshi factory. Factory workers in Bangladesh are in a midst of a struggle to get living wages and decent working conditions. The death of workers at a factory that makes garments, most likely for exports, will further infuriate the workers. The long-term future of Bangladesh as a source of cheap garment manufacturing now looks bleak.

As the wages and working conditions will improve in Bangladesh, it is very likely that importers in the west will abandon Bangladesh for the next cheap place to have shirt-less workers stitch clothes for consumers in the west.
