Where to begin? Our desire for cheap goods has driven garment manufacturing to countries that don't protect workers the way that the US does. Some will blame the unions for driving US manufacturing costs up. Garment workers in the US suffered under these conditions until a disaster resulted in a factory fire that killed many. Improved conditions resulted in increased costs. The rest is history. How sad. My heart is heavy for the Bangladesh garment workers.
