As they await the Bangladesh Manufacturers and Garments Association (BGMEA) report on the investigation into the fire at the Tazreen Fashions Ltd. factory, which took more than 111 lives, garment workers are watching the political community in Dhaka, Bangladesh, with anxiety.
“We’re still waiting for some consolidated action that shows the serious intent of the government,” said Akhrar Rahman, a garment worker in the Ashulia area where Tazreen’s factory is located. The original deadline for the report was Dec. 21. He added that marking one month from the incident which took place on Nov. 26 was even “more grievous because of the sense of injustice and the lack of action against the factory owner.”

"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)
