After factory collapse in Bangladesh, prelate demands just, safe conditions for workers
May 01, 2013
The archbishop of Dhaka, Bangladesh, said that the collapse of a factory building, which killed more than 150 people, demonstrated the need to ensure humane treatment for laborers.
Archbishop Patrick D’Rozario told Vatican Radio that many factory workers toil under substandard conditions, exploited by employers seeking higher profits. He added that “over 90%” of the country’s factory buildings do not comply with safety codes, and they are able to operate only because of the rampant corruption of public officials.
