WASHINGTON — Rep. George Miller (D., Calif.) said Friday the evidence to withdraw U.S. trade benefits to Bangladesh is “overwhelming,” in light of two recent tragedies in the country’s apparel industry and a long history of worker and labor rights violations, although he noted a question remains about whether to give the Southeast Asian nation a window of time to meet stringent benchmarks to retain the preferences.
Miller held a call with journalists after his five-day visit to Bangladesh, where he witnessed the impact of the Rana Plaza building collapse that claimed 1,129 lives and met with survivors, labor groups and unions, industry associations and government officials.

"That's something that resonates with me too because I'm so locked into a number. If I go over that number it completely ruins my day so it's nice to get detached from the number on the scale." - Chelsea Handler on Kelly LeVeque's book "Body Love." #wwdeye (📷: John Salangsang)
