Maureen Benson-Rea: Time to say goodbye to sweatshop clothing

From Sunday Morning, 8:41 am on 13 August 2017

In 2013 the Rana Plaza building in Bangladesh collapsed killing 1000 clothing workers. The tragedy resulted in a worldwide outcry and demands that international brands take steps to ensure that their clothes weren't being manufactured in sweatshops. Dr Maureen Benson-Rea, senior lecturer at the University of Auckland Business School, is the co-editor of Governing Corporate Social Responsibility in the Apparel Industry After Rana Plaza.
