The Bangladeshi economy fully depends on the garment sector which is 80% of the economy. The salary of a garment worker is less then $50 USD per month. Within that cost they have to live their life. Every year more than 100 garments workers die in fires or collapsed buildings.
This year an eight story building collapsed at Shavar, Dhaka. The Rana Plaza, comprised of four garment factories, a bank, and commercial shops including electronics and clothes, collapsed at approximately 8:30 am, an hour after garment workers were forced to join work on April 24, 2013.
1127 people died and thousands of people severally injured in the collapse. Among of the dead bodies, it was impossible to identify 291 bodies. Still now 300 people are missing.
The relatives of the missing people still believe that one day their son, daughter or parents will return.
