Six years ago on April 24th marks the most tragic accident in the history of the apparel industry. The workers at the Rana Plaza in Dhaka Bangladesh noticed cracks appeared in the walls of the building on April 23rd. They reported this to management and were told to go to work the following day anyway. The plaza crumbled with thousands of workers inside, killing more than 1100 people and injuring more than 2500. Clothing brands like Zara, H&M, and Walmart were running their production there. Working conditions in Bangladesh have improved since then but at what cost?
