In April, more than 1,100 people died when an eight-story building that housed garment factories in Bangladesh collapsed.

Since the tragedy at Rana Plaza, many promises have been made by the country’s government and international retailers alike, promising better safety for garment workers.

Here & Now’s Robin Young speaks to Harvard business professor John Quelch about the aftermath of the collapse.
