- At least 314 people were burnt to death as fire engulfed factories in Pakistani
ABCNEWS.COM – Lack of fire exits cause major death toll after fire Saturday evening.
This is not the first incident of this magnitude and for the same reasons. These news are very appalling and saddening! While many benefit from the cheap prices offered by U.S retail stores, others suffer from low wages, high risk working areas, and uncivilized treatment of those who are key to the success of such companies. Not to mention the inhumane lack of consideration by executives that are responsible for the well-being of their workers. It seems like no one cares, but perhaps is because we are not informed. To what extend do companies go to cover such stories from hitting the mainstream media? It is a shame that the only way to see this, is after disasters like these, in which, because the lack of safety, people lose their lives, and in such horrific ways.
