"These young people, 80 percent of them young women, they work thirteen and a half, fourteen and a half hours a day ... in the factory 90 to 100 hours a week. ... The younger people get 12 cents an hour, junior sewers get 22 cents an hour, senior workers 26 cents. You're talking about the lowest wages in the world. "

– Charles Kernaghan, director of the Institute for Global Labour and Human Rights, on the illegal 8-story factory building that collapsed in Bangladesh, killing over 400 garment workers that provide apparel for major Western retailers such as Dress Barn, Primark, Walmart and others.

sweatshops

Five days after the April 24 collapse of Rana Plaza, an illegally constructed eight-story building that housed five garment factories and a shopping mall in Dhaka, Bangladesh, government officials suspended rescue efforts. While nearly 400 bodies have been pulled from the rubble, an estimated 1,000 people who were inside the building at the time of the collapse are still missing, which could bring the death toll to near 1,400.  Story continues

abortion

Over the past few months, many states controlled by a Republican governor and legislature seem to be in a race to see who can craft the most restrictive abortion laws. The winner as of now is North Dakota, which passed a law limiting abortions to the first six weeks of pregnancy. So far 10 states have passed bans after 20 weeks; 7 have gone into effect, while 3 – in Georgia, Idaho and Arizona – are being challenged in federal court.  Story continues

Interview with Pradhan, counsel to the Constitution Project's bipartisan Task Force on Detainee Treatment, conducted by Scott Harris

torture

Just days before President Obama joined four former U.S. presidents to celebrate the opening of George W. Bush’s Presidential Library on the campus of Southern Methodist University in Dallas, the Constitution Project released a report detailing the findings of a two-year independent investigation into the abuse of U.S.-held detainees in the years after the 9/11 terrorist attacks. The group’s bipartisan 11-member Task Force on Detainee Treatment, led by two retired members of Congress, Republican Asa Hutchinson, and Democrat, James R. Jones, concluded that “American intelligence and military personnel used interrogation techniques on suspected terrorists captured in Afghanistan, Iraq and elsewhere, that in many instances constituted torture.”  Story continues
