BANGKOK — Ahead of the fourth anniversary of the Rana Plaza building collapse in Bangladesh, Human Rights Watch called on apparel and footwear brands to join a pledge promising transparency in their supply chain.
Signing on to the pledge would require brands and retailers to provide a regularly updated list of their manufacturers. Details should include the address of the facilities, the type of products made and the number of workers hired by each supplier factory. This pledge was hashed out by a coalition of nine labor and human rights organizations and unions.

"It's really hard sometimes. I think I have a reputation for being really tough and aggressive and pushy but I really am a very shy person who wants to be liked, and that's the conflict constantly. There's something that takes hold - I want people to like me, I don't want to be mean - but if I see something that just cries out to be answered, I go for it," says renowned NBC News correspondent Andrea Mitchell.
