That is among the questions being asked as the death toll from the collapse of the apparel factory building in Savar, near Dhaka, Bangladesh, rose to 430 on Thursday, with more than 520 injured, out of which 100 amputations have been estimated.
The rest of the rescued workers will also need new jobs, as well as immediate payments. Hundreds of workers are still missing, and eight days after the eight-story building collapsed, bodies are still being recovered from the debris.
The building, Rana Plaza, housed five garment factories, with more than 3,000 workers in the building at the time of the collapse. The incident is being described by authorities as the worst industrial accident in the garment industry in Bangladesh and the world.
“The total compensation figure is likely to be over $30 million in addition to the cost of emergency treatment,” the Clean Clothes Campaign said last week, when the death toll was known to be 300.

"I was driving back on Saturday afternoon from the beach, and I just saw this sign saying 'Skydiving for $95.' And I was like, I can't not sky dive for $95," says Tom Bateman about a moment in Hawaii while shooting "Snatched." #wwdeye (📷: @vsteves; Interview by @ktauer; Styled by @thealexbadia)
