Every day workers risk their lives in terrible conditions to make the merchandise that we see in stores like Target. Recent tragedies in Bangladesh have highlighted this fact: a human life is worth more than a cheap shirt. Target has refused to sign or even comment on the Bangladesh Safety Act which ensures that factories are safe for workers or they lose big business from retailers. It's time for Target to stand up and take notice before the next factory tragedy takes the lives of the hardworking folks who make their clothes.
