Standing in solidarity is the least we can do to ensure workers rights are protected, and that their workplace environment is safe.

noted and signed the petition on 5-1-13 all worker safety no matter if its in the united states or across the world should always be the number 1 priority and you can not put any dollar amount on a human life, but you can always rebuild a building all these greedy companies see is dollar signs and human lives do not matter to any of them we all need to be voices so this message will get through and changes are made for better safety measures.

Noted, signed, twittered and google shared. What an absolutely senseless tragedy. All of these big retailers should have to pay compensation to each and every family of a worker that lost their lives so that these companies can get rich. This is heartbreaking and infuriating. The supervisors and managers at each of these facilities should be sent to prison for first degree murder. Thanks Teresa

Well I sure agree with it but considering the way Walmart operates, I'm not sure they'll listen to anyone but themselves. They're so big they think they are immune from criticism. One of those "too big to fail" things like the banks even though they aren't a bank, they do act like one. Everywhere, not just in Bangladesh...

Unfortunately, it is exactly as Gene says. Walmart does NOT GIVE A DAMN. Why should they (or the other big retailers) if even factory owners put up their buildings completely illegally without a construction permit, so naturally Walfart thinks it's wasted money to implement their own safety regulations on an illegal site.
I am glad that this petition is addressing the govt. of Bangladesh first of all.

These people who are perpetrators in this are our country men......Sears, Gap. JC Penney, Wal-Mart. etc.
People who do not want to pay workers a fair wage for a good day's work.....( Just a repeat of what happened to the first and second wave of immigrants coming to America ) The building are not safe and apparently the foremen are "company workers"....even tho they are natives of the countries in which these incidents are happening,,,,,,,History does repeat itself......and repeats itself....I am heavy hearted when I think of what happened and how the people were prevented from saving themselves.... Some people laugh all the way to the back and other cry because they cannot feed their children...........

While I'm afraid you're right Gene, I live in hope that maybe, just maybe WalFart and the others will listen.

I signed but today I read that these companies are rethinking using Bengladesh to make their clothes. I prefer the quality of garments made in Bengladesh to the crap from China. but I do not condone the lack of care of the workers. What a tragedy.

These are such horrific tragedies which could have been so easily prevented if these American companies cared more about people's lives than profits! Shame on them. It is unconscionable to understand how the CEO's and managment of these companies can even sleep at night while so many people have died in these companies who make their clothes! How I hope that conditions will turn around for them quickly. I think until this happens that we should boycott stores like Walmart, JC Penney's and Sears who show no concern for these poor worker's safety and even worse and totally inconceivable- their lives!
