Big brands close factories in Bangladesh due to safety concerns
from The Toronto Star
A North American-led group of fast fashion brands operating in Bangladesh that it had closed or partially shut seven factories for remediation after inspectors found structural problems and safety concerns. The Alliance for Bangladesh Worker Safety — which includes 26 big brands such as Walmart, Hudson’s Bay Company, The Gap, Canadian Tire and The Children’s Place — said it will extend compensation to workers for up to four months if they are unable to work due to the closures.
