Hours before Wal-Mart Stores Inc. began meetings with its clothing suppliers from the U.S. and Canada on Thursday to explain sourcing policy changes unveiled this week, apparel industry workers in Dhaka, Bangladesh, took to the streets to criticize the global retail giant for not doing enough.
Garment workers held up posters and said that they expected compensation from Wal-Mart for those killed or injured in the deadly Tazreen factory fire in late November, which took the lives of 111 people. The police were on high alert, and workers also demanded the owner of the factory be arrested.
