Another factory collapses

This time the collapse was in Cambodia at a shoe factory, reports say two people have been killed. The suggestion is that equipment stored on the roof caused the collapse and that there could have been 100 people working in the building at the time.

Thank goodness it wasn't more serious than this, although two deaths is still too many.

The report goes on to say though that in the wake of the Bangladesh factory collapse:-

more than a dozen European companies, including discount clothing company Primark and UK supermarket chain Tesco, have signed up to a new legally-binding deal aimed at improving factory conditions in Bangladesh.

But many key US companies, including Gap Inc and Walmart, are not on board.


Wonder how many people are going to boycott Gap over this refusal to sign up as there were calls to boycott Primark. Rolling Eyes
