Can't be surprised that it happened in Bangladesh, the working conditions have been horrid for a while now.

They are horrid in all industrializing nations. It seems the price for progress is lives lost. No different than any other revolution.

We need cheap shirts so we can lower our prices, it's just a race to the bottom. And that is what the bottom looks like.

Have you read The Jungle?

No.

You don't need fictional stories. Greed makes the world work for some and control the masses by devloping hate or mistrust between different groups.

Sure, but not everyone writes a book about that.
