(WASHINGTON DC) - Statement by Kaytee Riek, campaign manager for SumOfUs.org, on President Obama’s decision to suspend trade privileges with Bangladesh over concerns about safety problems and labor rights violations in that country’s garment industry:
“We join with workers across the world in applauding President Obama and the White House for taking steps to pressure the Bangladeshi government to follow through with improving the working conditions for garment workers throughout the country. We hope the White House’s actions today will remind apparel companies, specifically American brands like Gap Inc and Walmart, of the continuing dire conditions in garment factories in Bangladesh and the need to sign the Bangladesh Safety Accord and protect workers from death traps.”
