he workers are generally young, poor and females. On December 14, more than two dozen of them were burned alive when an easily preventable fire broke out in the unsafe, multi-story sweatshop they were working in. The tragedy began when a fire broke out on the ninth and 10th floors of the multi-story "That's It Sportswear" clothing factory just north the Bangladeshi capital of Dhaka. With a number of the exits blocked, 28 workers were killed: most burned to death, some trampled to death, some killed by suffocation and others jumped from the flames to their death. Several dozen more suffered severe burns.
Please take action and sign the following petition so that big companies make sure this does not happen again to many other hardworking people who merely go to their factories for their bread and butter.
