Following the horrific BANGLADESH BUILDING COLLAPSE
- I hope many mainstream fashion brands will now rethink their policy of using cheap labour, or at least employ more staff to monitor and ensure buildings health and safety.
Do they have an obligation? I think they do, since they profit from such cheap labour. They may not care, so long as they can get a cheap garment for penny pinching fashion hungry Europeans to buy. I can't imagine what pressure may be put on factory managers, that means he insists workers enter a building with visible cracking.
Anyone wearing Primark today needs to reflect on the fact that the person who made it may well be crushed to death over their sewing machine. The time for more CAREFUL and SLOWER FASHION is now.
