SECAUCUS, N.J. — A small band of protesters from a range of labor groups staged a rally in front of Children’s Place headquarters here two weeks ahead of the one-year anniversary of the Rana Plaza factory disaster in Bangladesh, demanding $8 million in compensation for victims and their families.
Carrying placards with slogans such as “Children’s Place: Pay Up For Workers Killed and Injured Sewing Your Clothes at Rana Plaza,” and “There’s a Crack in Global Social Responsibility Just Like at Rana Plaza,” the group heard from two workers injured in the April 24, 2013, building collapse and how they need compensation from companies such as Children’s Place to help pay for the basic necessities of life. They said they were injured in the collapse that killed more than 1,100 workers and left thousands more injured.
