At 2:00, you'll see the cascading effects that the fire had on workers' rights and eliminating sweatshops in the United States. But watching it happen all over again in other parts of the world at 3:00 is heartbreaking. It was the same, exact circumstances as the Triangle Shirtwaist Factory fire, word for word. At 4:24, how do they calculate the “value" of a human life? And the images at 6:40 — really? All for a $26 pair of pants?
Even as recently as 2013, there was the Rana Plaza collapse in Bangladesh that killed 1,123 garment workers.
It has to end. Right now.
