Rana Plaza Collapse


rana-plazaAs we know from lessons the world is becoming increasingly interlinked.  We in the UK benefit from this a lot, it means we get year round access to seasonal foods, we can buy goods and products from countries where they can be produced for less money so we save and it means we can travel more easily.

Some people don’t benefit.  Bangladesh is becoming one of the worlds biggest manufacturers.  Factory workers there are often working in horrible, dangerous and uncomfortable conditions for very little money.

In April 2013 1130 workers were killed when their factory collapsed.  Your task is to decide whose fault this is and to explain why they are to blame.  You need to use the cards below to justify your decision.

You can pick more than one culprit- Good Luck 🙂
