Bangladesh Factory Collapse Killed More Than 1,000 Workers. Look, Pleats!


Above is a screenshot of the homepage for retailer Joe Fresh after news broke last night that a total of 1,021 bodies had been pulled from the ruins of Rana Plaza, a collapsed factory that produced clothes for Joe Fresh and UK chain Primark, among others. Remember the Triangle Shirtwaist Fire? That killed 146 garment workers.

Joe Fresh is a Canadian company, but there are five Joe Fresh stores in the United States, all located in Manhattan and Long Island.

Fun fact: That dress costs one dollar more than what those killed in the collapse made in a month.

ZOMG, pleats!
