Cracks In The Building

Bangladesh’s garment factory collapse at Rana Plaza has put pressure on U.S. companies to respond. Charles Kernaghan has been working for years to push companies and governments to prioritize the rights of workers in Bangladesh and elsewhere. He talks with host Dick Gordon about the string of recent tragedies and the complex web of forces that make change so difficult.
