BANGLADESH: Garment workers reject pay offer
Bangladesh garment workers have rejected a new minimum wage proposal of BDT1,604 (US$24.30) a month, staging another round of fraught demonstrations.
Workers want wages of at least BDT3,000 monthly, with some demanding BDT3,000.
Factory employees returned to work in mid-June following drawn-out and widespread riots over pay which led employers to promise new wage conditions.
