The 1100 workers who died in the Rana Plaza collapse in Bangladesh may have been making clothes for us. Since then, most European retailers have signed a new accord on building safety in Bangladesh. Major U.S. retailers have refused to sign -- including Walmart, Gap/Old Navy, Children's Place, Kohl's, Carters, and Target. Disney decided to stop sourcing clothes to Bangladesh, which hardly helps Bangladeshi workers. American consumers are left with very few major retailers where we can buy clothes for our kids or ourselves in good conscience.
Please, Target, make sure your clothes workers have basic safe conditions. Sign the accord on Bangladeshi factory safety.
Economists calculate that insuring basic worker safety may cost an addition 10 cents for each item of clothing. We are willing to pay a dime.
