WASHINGTON — Labor and human rights groups working with organizations in Bangladesh and their own staffs on the ground there said they have found more labels and turned up the names of seven factories that subcontracted work to the Smart Export Garment Ltd. factory, where seven garment workers died in a fire over the weekend.
The fire, which also injured at least 15 workers, has sparked protests in Bangladesh and calls for action and change by U.S. and international labor rights groups. It follows on the heels of the Tazreen factory fire in late November that claimed the lives of more than 111 garment workers in Ashulia, Bangladesh.
