'Walmart has come under attack from labor monitors over the burnt-down garment factory in Bangladesh, which was producing clothes for America’s largest retailer. The company took an evasive position before finally claiming violation of contract.
On Monday The Nation magazine published photos of charred clothes found in the ruins of the factory with easily-recognizable Faded Glory labels associated with Walmart.
In an interview to The Nation, Executive Director of the Worker’s Rights Consortium Scott Nova accused Walmart’s business model of creating deadly labor conditions in Bangladesh and named the horrible fire as the direct consequence of that model.
Nova, who represents the WRC group that monitors labor worldwide, said that Walmart’s seeking out the “cheapest possible labor costs” in Bangladesh is one of the major reasons for the tragedy. Since the retailer is the largest buyer from Bangladesh it “makes the market” and bears responsibility for what goes on clothing factories in Bangladesh.'

I think that little smiley-faced guy that Walmart uses should have been there inspecting the factory.

I was watching ABC News yesterday and they said there are over 100 such factories there. And they are all like the one that burned.
These factories ship clothes to MACYS, JC PENNY, SEARS, TARGET, KOHLS, as well as dozens of other stores.
But since Wal Mart is the evil store, naturally they deserve all the blame. So I believe we should demand all the stores raise the price of clothing and send the extra money to those factories so they can upgrade to safer conditions. I KNOW Lefty is with me on this.

Walmart is an Illuminati store. Sam Walton groomed Bill and Hillary Clinton to be Illuminati politicos and allowed vile stores like Walmart and Sam's Club to thrive at the expense of their employees and mom and pop stores.
